Best places to stop when travelling from Perth to Margaret River

wine-chocolate-pairing

A weekend escape to the Margaret River wine region is an easy three-hour drive from Perth. And whilst there’s lots to see and do when you arrive in our beautiful part of South Western Australia, equally there’s some spectacular scenery to absorb along the way with quaint attractions to explore and breathtaking coastal scenery. Cafés, restaurants and food providores are scattered along the route as you pass through towns like Bunbury, Busselton and Dunsborough. 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. Don’t forget that we’ll have a welcoming glass waiting for you at Brown Hill Estate when you arrive, so be sure to add our Rosa Brook Cellar Door to your itinerary when you reach your end destination.
