Just three hours’ drive south of Perth and only 110km from end to end, Your Margaret River Region is one of Australia’s most compact, yet strikingly diverse holiday destinations stretching from Busselton and Dunsborough in the north of the region, down to Augusta in the south.

There are just so many things to do in the Margaret River region you’ll need at least a few days to explore it. Take advantage of our stunning range of accommodation throughout the region in Margaret River, Dunsborough, Busselton, Augusta, Yallingup and throughout the South West.
