Margaret River is well-known for its gorgeous sandy beaches and rugged coastline, so stopping along the beach is a must. Step down to the sand and sip your coffee along the shore while you embrace the serenity of the crashing waves. Take a morning stroll along the pristine beach and admire the stunning turquoise waters. If the sun is out, we recommend taking a dip.

Explore The Boranup Karri Forest

Jump in your KINTO* car and head down the coast to the Boranup Karri Forest. Put on your hiking shoes and venture into the forest. The Boranup Karri Forest is jam-packed with Karri trees that can reach up to 60 metres tall. Wander through the forest, explore the beautiful scenery, or take a scenic drive and experience just how tall these magnificent trees are. If you visit in Spring, you'll see the lovely wildflowers carpeting the forest floor.

All that walking is sure to have worked up an appetite. Head over to Glenarty Road Winery, a farm and winery combined. There are a handful of tours where you can spend time around the property learning about the wines, growing produce in the garden and wine pairings.

If you want to sip some smooth wines, the bar has you covered with tastings and a charming setting to try Glenarty Road's delicious wines. Or, if you're eager to feast, the Farmhouse Kitchen has a variety of delectable menus that will have your mouth watering.

Into The Caves

Keep exploring the area by going into one of the natural cave formations. Choose from Mammoth Cave, where you can take a self-guided audio tour along the boardwalks and see a 50,000-year-old Zgyomaturus jawbone embedded into the wall. Or see Lake Cave, which goes deep down a sinkhole where delicate crystal formations grow on the cave's ceiling.

A Magical Sunset

On your way back into Margaret River, stop by Surfers Point or Prevelly Beach for one of the best spots to watch the sunset. Western Australia is well known for having extraordinary sunset views, so a day in Margaret Valley wouldn't be complete without a WA sunset. Sit back and watch the sky light up as the sun goes to sleep in a sunset to remember.
