A 4000 km road trip from Adelaide, a mere 3.5 hour drive south of Perth or a quick flight to Busselton, will bring you to the stunning Margaret River region of Western Australia. This jewel of Australia’s South West is famous for its monstrous surf, rich national parks, ancient Aboriginal culture and delicious local produce.
You’ll hear many places claim that they have something for everyone, but in Margaret River that’s really the case thanks to the beautiful beaches, spectacular tall tree forests, impressive cave system, fascinating native fauna, dolphin swimming, whale watching and unique collection of wildflowers. Plus if you are partial to a little gastronomic indulgence, then Margaret River is a real foodie haven with its top 5 culinary delights: wines, cheeses, fruit pickles, aged meats and fresh Marron – a speciality to Western Australia.
Picture yourself with the sand beneath your toes, a glass of the region’s finest wine in hand and the sun setting over the water, this provides the perfect backdrop for many of the unforgettable experiences at this year’s Margaret River Gourmet Escape, 22 – 24 November, 2013.
The exclusive food and wine festival will deliver a program showcasing the best of Western Australia and the Margaret River Wine Region through a lauded line up of over 25 international and Australian food and wine personalities and special events set in unique locations, attracting food and wine lovers and holiday makers to the region.
