If you are headed down south on the March long weekend make sure you drop in on the Dunsborough Arts Festival - on the banks of Geographe Bay. You will see a plethora of sculptures as part of Sculpture by the Bay, local performances at sunset concerts, workshops and a hand makers art market, drop into the Dunsborough Art Society or Christian Fletcher Gallery to see Small Sculptures.
Make sure you take the time to peruse the artworks and vote for the People's Choice Award and see which is the City of Busselton's Acquisitive Prize, or the fabulous Dianne Laurance Award for Excellence. The artworks are for sale, and many people now come down to find some unique piece for their garden. Small Sculptures, which started in 2019, features small works for inside!
The Margaret River Wine Association (MRWA) is the peak body for Margaret River grape growers and winemakers.
- Local Clubs:Food & Wine
- Established:Late 1970s
The Margaret River Wine Assocition was established in the late 1970’s as the Margaret River Grape Growers & Winemakers Association and was incorporated in 1982.
The Association was one of the first groups in Australia to register a geographic boundary for our region in 1996 and Margaret River was one of the first three wine regions in Australia to have its boundaries legally defined by the Australian government.
The charter of the Association has remained constant over the years, primarily to represent the interests of the Margaret River wine industry and promote Margaret River fine wine.
The MRWA is an independent, non-profit organisation, financed by its members and additional funding sourced from corporate members, sponsorship and grants. MRWA has more than 165 industry members and 50 associated Grape Grower and Commercial members.

<p> The circle of dots represents the campfire where all people, family, and friends gather around the fire to share stories, dance, and celebrate this sacred space - where the land meets the sea.<br /> <br /> The four figures symbolise everyone, including family, friends, and neighbours walking and working together - side by side - as one. To Aboriginal people, fire, family and people working in harmony are closely linked, so this symbolism is important and is what the Undalup Association Inc. is about;<br /> <br /> “Undalup is also honouring a place for healing and connection to Noongar Boodjar (Country), embracing the elements given to us from Boodjar Ngarngk (Earth Mother), celebrating the “meeting place” and bringing harmony on the land we all walk together” -<br /> <br /> Chairman of Undalup Association Inc., Iszaac Webb<br /> <br /> Undalup Members believe that: “From little things, big things grow".</p>
