Margaret River Western Australia

Margaret River WA


Western Australia regions:

Deep in the South West Region, this is a town that seems like it is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of modern day stress. It is ideally located between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin.

As the focus of the entire area, the wine region is officially known as "The Margaret River Wine Region".

Thousands of surfers visit the town year round to experience the marvellous surf breaks that litter the ocean around Margaret River.


Margaret River Western Australia


280 kilometres south-west of Perth

Margaret River is an inland town situated near the west coast of Australia's South West tourist region. Margaret River faces west to the Indian Ocean and the Margaret River runs through to the ocean nearby of which the town and the Margaret River Wine Region takes its name. One of the best ways to get to Margaret River is to hire a car from Perth Airport.

The Margaret River

Trickling through some of the most prestige temperate forest in the world, ferns, palms and Jarrah trees provide a scene like an enchanted forest in which the town of Margaret River is discreetly nestled and feeds into the ocean where the largest surfing waves in Western Australia are found.

The mediterranean climate is ideal for growing grapes, which produce some of the finest wines Australia has to offer. Buffeted by storms coming in from the ocean in winter, bringing a lot of rainfall, the region enjoys sunshine and clear skies most of the year. A very pleasant, cooler climate. In Summer (December to February), the average maximum temperature is 32°C with an average minimum temperature of 16°C. In Winter (June to August), the average maximum temperature is 19°C with an average minimum temperature of 11°C.


The town and river were named after Margaret Wyche, cousin of John Bussell, founder of Busselton in 1831. There was settlement as early as the 1850s with the area being used for timber cutting from the 1870s. By 1910, the town had a hostel also operating as a Post Office.

After World War I, the town of Margaret River really became established. The Group Settlement Scheme, an attempt to attract migrants to Western Australia and open up the good rural land, attracted settlers to the town and in 1922 over 100 settlers moved into the district.
