Margaret River


Margaret River is in the South West region of Western Australia. It is one of our favorite destinations to take friends and family who come to visit or if we just want to get away for a long weekend.

When Viv and Jo came to visit from the UK and we wanted to show them a little bit of Western Australia we took them to Margaret River and had a brilliant couple of days.

We spent a long weekend down in Margaret River and while we where there we went on a Canoe Tour of the River. It was great fun and we even managed not to fall in.

The tour started mid morning and we canoed our way up the river stopping to hear about the Bussells along the way. We stopped for a bit of a hike where we saw some splendid views,

met some very big looking king ants (I would not like to get some of those in my pants)

and saw some bees nests…..

Then is was time for a spot of bushtuker for lunch.

Well after all the canoing and walking we were all ready for a rest so it was time to chill out on the beach for a while before calling into the town of Margarete River for a coffee before going home for a kip, shower and change and dinner out at a Margaret River Winery.

We chose to eat at The Grove winery where we enjoyed a lovely meal followed by an after dinner game of hang man.
