Even the most seasoned traveller can’t help but be awestruck by the natural beauty of Augusta. A mecca for adventure, windsurfing, snorkelling and whale watching are some of the town’s main attractions. Families will find no shortage of activities to keep kids entertained, with fantastic fishing, swimming and caving adventures available.
If a quieter, laid-back getaway is what you’re craving, head south. Generations of families have idled their summers away beachcombing, exploring caves, climbing the lighthouse and fishing in the bay. In this breathtakingly beautiful corner of the Margaret River Region, the Blackwood River meets the sea and Cape Leeuwin marks the southern tip of Australia, it’s not rare to be the only person on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
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.
