Rated by Outdoor Magazine as one of the 10 best short vacation experiences in Australia, this Margaret River excursion is much more than just another wine tour.
With your expert local guide and luxury 4WD vehicle you’ll go off-road to places that other tours don’t reach. Learn Aboriginal legends surrounding the spectacular Meekadarabee waterfall and peer down the dizzying Wilyabrup cliffs. View towering karri forest ablaze with wildflowers and alive with birdlife.
You’ll also enjoy the chance to canoe the peaceful Margaret River. And, when all this outdoor activity makes you hungry, you will be served a gourmet lunch of delicious local produce among barrels of ageing wine at small emerging superstar winery.
If you only have a short time in Margaret River, this superb tour shows you the very best the beautiful region has to offer.
