The Margaret River Region

Summer will see warm temps in the mid-high 20’s (degrees celsius), beautiful crystal waters and soft white sands. Make sure you drink plenty (in between your wines), and are lubed up for sun protection! We don’t want to see any post wine tour lobsters out there…!! Spring is in the air!! Margaret River Springtime is pretty much the opposite to Margaret River in Autumn! As the winter edge mellows out, and summer approaches, you can pretty much expect to wear whatever you like. A light jumper is generally all you need to stay comfortable.

Dressing For The Climate

In Margaret River we are fortunate enough to have four very distinct seasons in Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring.

Summer will see warm temps in the mid-high 20’s (degrees celsius), beautiful crystal waters and soft white sands. Make sure you drink plenty (in between your wines), and are lubed up for sun protection! We don’t want to see any post wine tour lobsters out there…!!

Autumn starts a lot like summer, you can expect it to be fairly reasonable weather with temps in the high teens to low 20’s. Towards the end of Autumn however, temps start to drop to the low-mid teens!!

Winter can do nothing to change the beauty of Margaret River! And it’s the perfect opportunity to bust out that winter wardrobe, and get the camera out for those perfect soft lighting conditions. You’ll be looking at single digits to early teens for temps.

Spring is in the air!! Margaret River Springtime is pretty much the opposite to Margaret River in Autumn! As the winter edge mellows out, and summer approaches, you can pretty much expect to wear whatever you like. A light jumper is generally all you need to stay comfortable.

How To Get To South WA

The Margaret River region is located approximately 3-3.5 hours drive south west of Perth, WA. Take the Kwinana Freeway out of Perth city, and this will become the Forrest Highway. Follow the initial signs towards Bunbury, and then Busselton, travelling via the Bussell Highway.

Busselton is the gateway to the Margaret River Region. If you are continuing on to Margaret River or Dunsborough, you do not need to go into Busselton itself, just continue along the Busselton Bypass (Bussell Hwy), and then continue to follow the signs to your preferred destination.

Dunsborough, the quickest turns right at the end of the Bypass and then immediately left onto Caves Road. Drive approx 20mins and you will reach Dunsborough. Yallingup is a short drive from Dunsborough by continuing along Caves Road.

Margaret River continue along the Bypass (Bussell Hwy) for a further 30 minutes, driving through Vasse and Cowaramup, until you reach the Margaret River township. Prevelly and Gnarabup are approx 10 minutes West of town by following Wallcliffe Rd, through the Caves Rd intersection (left then sharp right), then keep going. You will see signs as you round the bend with the view of the ocean (you can’t miss it!!)
