Spring is the perfect time of year to visit the beautiful Margaret River region – the temperatures are mild, the wildflowers are in full bloom and there is a variety of extraordinary experiences on offer.  

Here is our list of the Top 10 things to do in Margaret River region in Spring:

  1. Walk amongst the wildflowers: The Margaret River region is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, and in spring, thousands of wildflowers bloom – creating a spectacular carpet of colourful beauty.  Do a guided wildflower walk or just see them for yourself as you meander through the gorgeous landscapes of the region;
  2. Hike the Cape to Cape Track:  Spring is the best time of year to walk the Cape to Cape Track – whether you do just one section or the whole track, the scenery is mind-blowing, the temperatures are mild and the wildflowers are prolific;
  3. Watch whales: The whales have been up north and are back to relax and play in Geographe Bay.  Boat tours operate from Dunsborough and Busselton from September to December, or just spot them from the land;
  4. Go camping:  Spring is the perfect time of year to pack the car with all the essentials and head down to one of the awesome campsites in the Margaret River region. Rough it in the national park designated campgrounds or ‘glamp’ at one of the great local caravan parks;
  5. Go mountain biking:  Mountain biking is fast becoming the most popular adventure sport in the South West – and whether you just roll over the bumps or you are a serious biking enthusiast, it doesn’t matter – Spring is the perfect time to get on your bike and get amongst it!
  6. Go to the Gourmet Escape: The Margaret River Gourmet Escape is the largest growing food and wine festival in the southern hemisphere – and with names like Heston Blumenthal, Alex Atala and Rick Stein heading up this year’s lineup, it’s going to be unmissable!
  7.   Watch the Augusta Adventure Fest:  The Augusta Adventure Fest (formerly Anaconda Adventure Race) is a thrilling off-road adventure race involving an ocean swim, a run, a kayak and a serious bike ride – if you’re not up for it, just head down to spectate – the atmosphere is electrifying!
  8.  Delve into Moondyne Cave:  Moondyne Cave only operates for 6 months of the year – from June until December, so don’t miss your chance to experience an unforgettable journey with one of the region’s most exclusive caving experiences. Deck yourself out in overalls, gloves and helmets for a unique and intimate three hour experience by torchlight;
  9. Climb the lighthouse:  Beat the Summer rush and climb the tower of mainland Australia’s tallest lighthouse at Cape Leeuwin. Watch the rugged Indian Ocean crash against the Southern Ocean and learn the fascinating maritime history of the Cape;
  10. Do a wine and food tour: There is no better time of year than Spring to get frocked up, grab your mates and jump on a tour of the region’s culinary delights – fine wine, gourmet produce, craft beer… what’s not to like!

The Margaret River region is bursting with an abundance of life and activity all year round. There is a myriad of regular top-notch musical events, theatre performances and twilight movies scattered across the many stunning wineries and indoor venues. Market days feature frequently with a multitude of fresh local produce, arts and craft.
