Looking for the ideal place to explore Margaret River? Situated on Wallcliffe Rd, in the grounds of the Margaret River Resort, this villla unit is ideally located. It's just minutes from the town, near the Community Centre, and on the main road to the beach. Featuring two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and large bathroom, the villa is an ideal base for exploring all that the region has to offer - from adventure holidays, wine and food tours or just a peaceful place to relax.
Margaret River is situated about three hours from Perth, the capital city of Western Australia.
Margaret River is a premier wine region, featuring a range of styles and grapes, plus breweries and cideries, not to mention the olive oil and local cheeses. One of the first places settled by Europeans, the area is well known for its unique flora - such as the giant Karri forests at Boranup, and for its extraordinary natural beauty. A series of karst limestone caves allow for adventure caving, or for more family centred activities, and are the sites of some of the oldest megafauna fossills. It's the site of major surfing competitions, but is also suited for a wide range of surfing skills, not to mention diving, snorkelling and whale watching.

The Western Australia region
The south west of Western Australia is one of the world's major biodiversity hotspots, chiefly for the variety of native flora. Although many of the species are extremely rare and difficult to spot, the same cannot be said of the magnificent karri and jarrah forests for which the region is renowned. American whalers and sealers regularly visited the coast from the late 1700s on, and the annual migration of humpback and other whales is a major attraction. French explorers in the 1800s were responsible for naming the major features, such as Cape Naturaliste, while the major current along the coast - the Leeuwin current - not only flows back to front, but was named after Dutch sailors along the coast from the 1600s. The many beaches and coves along the coast are famous for their surf breaks, while the many caves offer underground adventure. The Devils' Lair, in the heart of the region, provides evidence of human occupation for over 40,000 years.
Summer days are warm and ideal for swimming; winters are for enjoying the rich food and wines of the region. The Margaret River Pro Surf Classic and Gourmet Food Festivals are testament to these. And in February, the world's best entertain at the annual Leeuwin Concert.
From the first years of settlement of Western Australia, the area has been a major focus of the dairy and beef industries. In the1920s it was promoted as an agricultural haven for British migrants, and in the 1970s the first grape vines were established. Since then, Margaret River wines have become world famous, with rich reds and clear crisp whites.
The town of Margaret River is situated about 9 kilometres from the coast, and is in the heart of the wine and dairy areas. It is surrounded by areas of State Forest, with magnificent tuarts and peppermints. Just before entering the town from the north, the main road enters a magical area of tuart forest which frames the town beautifully. To the west, Caves Rd takes you over the dunes and limestone ridges that make up the coast.
