Aah yes, you want to know why it’s a great base to explore Margaret River? Here are some top sightseeing spots nearby:
1. Surfers Point Prevelly
Surfers Point Prevelly is the reason Margaret River has grown from a tiny outback town to a region filled with the spirit of adventure. If you are an experienced surfer, you will already know why you are stopping here. If you want to see surfing, this is the spot to watch the way Australians handle some of the best Indian Ocean waves.
2. Cape to Cape Track
The iconic scenery off the coast of WA and it’s unique flora and fauna makes the Cape To Cape Walking Track a must! even if, like me, you are the teensiest bit unfit – even a leisurely stroll along one small section is amazing.
3. Mammoth Cave & Lake Cave
Head down into the depths of the earth to experience some of WA’s historic caves. The Lake Cave is a unique sight to see because of its tranquil lake reflections. Find out more
Craft beer breweries are popping up all over the region and there are some great locally produced breweries within a half hour drive from the resort.

Why not combine your wine tasting taste experience with a game of golf at the Margaret River Golf Course. Not many golf courses out there can rival this course for scenic beauty and sheer golfing challenge.
