Margaret River Must Dos

17 Oct 2006  Went for first time in 1999 - can't stop going back since
4.0 of 5 stars based on 7 votes

So much to do in Margaret River - so little time (unless you're one of the lucky few who live there)

  • Category: Best of
  • 1. Your brunch stop on the way from Perth - the goose
    http://www.thegoose.com.au

    The best place to stop for brunch on the way down from Perth. Loads of good food, all very stylishly presented in that modern Oz way - but not stinting on the portions. Try the french toast, or the full works breakie, or even head into the lunch menu for stuff like oysters or fish and chips. Whichever, you'll eat enough to make you walk down the jetty once you're done...

  • 2. Walking off your brunch - and maybe catch dinner
    http://www.busseltonjetty.com.au

    Busselton jetty is bloody long - check the website if you don't believe me - with beautfiul views across the bay and fishermen all the way along. Buy some fishing gear at the shop and try your luck. You may just get some small fry, but I've seen fishos hauling off huge catches from the end... you never know

  • 3. A little tipple?

    Leaving Busselton behind, you head straight into the heart of the vineyard region, so you might as well prepare for it with a little background reading. Robert Parker's top wines are Moss Wood, Moss Wood... and he likes some others. If you want to try out Moss Wood, give them a call as they don't have an "always open" sign on the cellar door - you need to book.

  • 4. Probably best to watch if you just hit the vineyards

    But watching the surfers at any of these spots is a great way to wind down an afternoon of a little too much imbibing. This guide will take you to the best waves.

  • 5. Fish and Chip Supper

    There's no websitefor this restaurant, but get there before sunset to enjoy the best that this Margaret's gem has to offer - cracking views across the huge breakers while you tuck into top fish and chips while sipping the chardonnay you picked up earlier in the day. There's nowhere better to plan the next day. What do I suggest? More vineyards, some coastal walks, mountain biking with dirty detours (google it) or a milk shake at the Margaret River Cheese Company (oh yes, really fresh milk). Enjoy
