If you fancy a glass or two of fine wine while staying in Perth, in western Australia, why not forget about the good local restaurants and bars in the city and try this rewarding two day Margaret River Wine experience. You will be taken from the city by coach for a one night stay in the lovely wine region which includes visits to some of the area's main highlights and attractions. This vintage short break makes a great add on to any holiday Down Under.
At 8.00am join your coach to commence a two day Margaret River Wine Tour for Food Lovers. Travel south to the coastal town of Busselton to enjoy morning tea (own expense), and whilst here marvel at the Busselton Jetty, a two kilometre construction and the longest timber jetty in the southern hemisphere. Head to Margaret River and enjoy a gourmet platter lunch of local produce, with complimentary beer and cider tastings. Next head to Mammoth Cave for a guided tour of one of over 300 natural underground limestone caves in the district. Pass by stunning Boranup Forest, a visual highlight of the region before arriving at Augusta's famous Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, situated at the most south westerly tip of Australia and where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet. Heading back to Margaret River, visit a local winery to taste some wines from this iconic region. Make a brief stop in Margaret River township where free time is available to stroll the main street and explore the quaint shops, before arriving at your accommodation
After breakfast, be taken on a unique gastronomic journey celebrating the region's food and wine artisans. Savour wine tasting in a tranquil and intimate fashion at a range of remarkable boutique and 5 star wineries. Enjoy a superb lunch at the renowned Vasse Felix or Cullen Wines.
