About Margaret River
Margaret River is a huge region, stretching some 120km from north to south. The region is often divided into the four sub-regions of Busselton & Vasse, Dunsborough to Yallingup, Margaret River Central and Margaret River South. Each sub-region has its own unique characteristics and attractions, from Busselton’s iconic jetty, the longest jetty in the Southern Hemisphere, to the stunning jewel caves in Margaret River South.
