About Southwest and Margaret RiverOriginally a chilled out surfing destination, the Southwest and Margaret River Wine Region has evolved into the ultimate smorgasbord of good food, fine wine and spectacular scenery. There’s an abundant supply of world-class wineries, boutique breweries, and restaurants overlooking sweeping vineyards and surf breaks. The more active can have a go at rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, whale watching, or fishing. But no visit to Australia's South West is complete without indulging in delectable fresh and locally prepared cuisine. The fresh harvest lifestyle has lured numerous award winning chefs to the region where you can pick up freshly picked fruit, vegetables or berries straight from the farm gate. Australia's first mainland truffles were grown in the Manjimup region and are a delight to savour when in season. Combine this with a glass of the region's range of quality wines for a truly unique and memorable gourmet experience. Accommodation-wise, there’s something for all budgets.
