Galleries – there are numerous galleries including sculptured wood furniture made from local timber including many pieces that manage to be both magnificent works of art as well as functional furniture. There are also the traditional paintings & sculptures & pottery galleries, many of which are part of the wineries. Cheese factories – there are now a number of local cheese factories where you can take a tour to see how the cheese is made, before sampling & buying the local produce.

This list is by no means exhaustive, but should provide a good idea as to the region’s ability to satisfy everyone’s holiday requirements. There is so much more to this region that makes it unique, such as the fact that as a wine region it is on the coast & adjacent to some of the best surfing beaches & picturesque coastline in wa. This is my favorite scenic drive in wa & the road winds through sections of tall trees which create a canopy over the road with filtered, speckled sunlight, entering through the car windows.

This distance & travel time mean that many visit for a weekend or an overnight stay, which allows adequate time to see many of the diverse offerings the region has to offer. As far as diversity of things to do & see, the list is almost endless & includes the following: wineries – this is some of the best wine country in Australia & produces many wines that have also earned an international reputation for their quality & unique richness & full-bodied taste. Breweries – over the last few years, a number of boutique breweries have emerged in the region, & are now as popular with the many visitors as the wineries.

As you drive caves road you will also pass many of the wineries situated either on this road, or off one of the many intersections, heavily signposted to tell the visitors what delightful distractions lie down each of these many exits. This eclectic mix of contrasting scenery, coupled with the two-lane winding country road, satisfies both the driver’s appreciation of a unique stretch of road that is both challenging & relaxing in different sections, & a passengers fulfilled dream as they soak in the varied colors & textures of the scenery.

Every time I get back to Margaret River I am excited by the prospect of revisiting many of my favorite haunts, as well as exploring some of the newly built attractions that seem to be popping up almost every week. Next time you are planning a trip to Perth, make sure you allow yourself a couple of days at least to explore this magnificent region in all it’s splendor.
