The Margaret River region, 3 hours south of Perth, is an amazing place. Aim to arrive for the Margaret River Pro Surfing competition and you can watch all the greats show you how it’s done before you get in the waves yourself. If you’d prefer to keep your feet dry then you can trek the famous Cape to Cape Track. The hike is absolutely amazing and the coastal scenery is breathtaking.
On our trip we got to meet Kelly Slater at the surfing and spent the afternoon watching all the action. We stayed at Willy Bay Resort in Metricup which we couldn’t recommend more highly. Set in amongst the grape vines it is perfect for a long weekend.
