Western Australia’s South West is a great place to do some serious whale watching. Pick a vantage point along the coast and watch the whales swim by. Whale season runs from June to August but travellers may even catch a glimpse of a humpback as late as October. Take the whole family along to explore the depth of Lake Cave or guide your tastebuds through an adventure of local gourmet food and wine at the annual Margret River Gourmet Escape, a popular event with locals and tourists held every November. Taste Great Southern celebrates even more gourmet food and wine in the region each year in February.
Blow holes and reefs line the pristine coastline. Pick a trail and discover the unique coastline. Surfer’s paradise rests at Surfers Point. With clean waters and waves that can reach 10ft high, surfers reign in these waters. Every year surfers flock to the water for the annual Drug Aware Margret River Pro.
