Margaret River – a gorgeous spot for a quick break from Perth.

Margaret River in the south west of Western Australia needs no introduction. It’s the big hitter destination that most people head to. It’s no wonder, with it’s lovely restaurants and wineries as well as plenty of gorgeous coastline and nearby natural attractions. We had a lovely al-fresco lunch outside at the Brewhouse. They were most welcoming for humans and canines. Doggy friends who come to this buzzy pub are quickly supplied with a water bowl (actually faster than humans were served with some cool water!)

Layla by Russell Sheridan – sculpture symbolizing protection for all the surfers lost in the waves!
Kevill Road Waterfall – a hidden local gem!

When visiting Margaret River, the sleepy town of Augusta is only a 40 minute drive south and worth a visit. On route, stop in at Hamelin Bay.

Hamelin Bay – famous for sting rays but we didn’t see any on this overcast day!
Historic Water Wheel near Augusta. This used to supply the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse keepers with water

Love to hear what you think! Thanks!!
