Things to do in Southwest


View Guides
Just a couple of hours south of the Perth CBD, Western Australia’s South West region is the states’ most popular tourism destination for both local and visiting travellers. Home to the Blackwood River Valley, Margaret River, Geographe and Southern Forests regions, a trip down the South Western Highway will take you through beautiful countryside of rolling hills and historical towns tucked away in the valleys. The region also boasts a rich viticulture industry, with lots of wineries open for tastings and cellar door sales.

Held each year in the magical town of Margaret River, marketers, content-makers, innovators, futurists, leaders and artists across music, film, advertising, photography, digital, experiential and visual arts come to Emergence to collaborate and share knowledge in a unique brains trust. Whether it's ideas, inspiration, networking, industry insights or emerging trends you're after, The Emergence Creative Fesitval brings it all together in a wild few days. 

This year's festival theme is 'Human Connection in a Post-Digital World,' the question being, is our digital attachment as consumers and businesses detaching us from human experience? Our keynotes and workshops will explore how we can harness the benefits of new tech, dodge the pitfalls and connect as people in a post-digital landscape. 

Alongside many keynotes and hands-on workshops are satelite events and pop-ups that celebrate the beautiful region of Margaret River and allows you to network and connect with other like-minded individuals.
