Rainy Day Activities in Margaret River

wine-chocolate-pairing

While the beautiful beaches and gorgeous summer weather are certainly key attractions of our corner of Western Australia, you’ll find plenty to explore during the cooler months or on a rainy day in the Margaret River region. If you want to stay active or are travelling as a family, there are magical limestone caves, extensive mountain bike trails, forest walks and scenic drives. To soak up the atmosphere at a slower pace, enjoy a long lunch or brunch or browse some of our favourite local galleries. And then there’s one of our favourite ways to stay cosy on a cool afternoon – a tasting experience at our Brown Hill Estate Cellar Door. We look forward to welcoming you after you’ve spent some time enjoying the region’s best rainy day activities.

It’s worth taking a few days to experience and explore our beautiful region. Here are a few of our local favourites that we’re stopped at as a family over the years that we recommend you add to your itinerary for when you need to stretch your legs on your trip.
