Perth to Margaret River
Your Margaret River Luxury Escape begins bright and early at your Perth accommodation, where your experienced Guide will greet you. Over a coffee, discuss the journey ahead and then travel south to your first destination at the popular tourist town of Busselton. Take a stroll along the world’s second-longest jetty, which stretches 1.8km out into stunning Geographe Bay. Descend eight metres below the ocean surface to discover Australia’s greatest artificial reef at the Underwater Observatory, host to vividly coloured tropical and sub-tropical marine life.
Come lunchtime, arrive at the Margaret River, enjoy a scrumptious lunch, and spend the rest of the afternoon tasting your way around the wine regions’ best cellar doors, which we will tailor to your liking. Options include premium establishments such as Gabriel’s Chocolate, Cullen Wines and Vasse Felix.
Come 6 pm, check into your Lakeside Room at one of Australia’s best boutique hotels – Cape Lodge. Set on 40 acres of manicured parkland and featuring a vineyard, this high-quality property with its old English charm is sure to impress. Tonight, you will dine at the Cape Lodge Restaurant, renowned as one of the great dining rooms in Western Australia. Offering classically prepared French-influenced country fare, it showcases the best of Margaret River’s produce sourced from the land to the sea.
Start the day with a delicious breakfast in the comfort of your room. Then, unwind during a one-and-a-half-hour spa treatment of your choice. Then, feeling blissfully relaxed, it’s time to meet one of Australia’s most loved and recognised chefs – Tony Howell, or Chef Tone as he is affectionately known. Featured in Condé Nast, during a hands-on cooking lesson, Tony will provide step by step tuition in the making of superb seasonal dishes followed by lunch with matching wines.
This afternoon you will meet an incredible human and Wadandi custodian – Josh ”Koomal” Whiteland. He will introduce you to the world’s oldest living culture with his authentic and personal interpretation on a two-hour private tour of the spectacular Cape Naturaliste. Learn about native flora and fauna, bush medicine and hear local stories as you take a leisurely walk along part of the iconic Cape to Cape Track. As you take in the breathtaking scenery and feel Josh’s passion, you will gather a deeper appreciation of Indigenous culture and their connection to the land. Meet at a private meeting place where you will see an artefact display and be mesmerised by a live didgeridoo performance.
Next, experience breathtaking vistas at one of the most romantic and secluded spots in the Margaret River Wine Region – Bunker Bay. The Other Side of the Moon restaurant in the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort features a contemporary Australian menu underpinned by an Indigenous flair and a South West flavour. Enjoy an exquisite dining experience as you watch the sunset and moonrise over the ocean.
Margaret River to Perth
On the last day of your escape, enjoy breakfast at one of the local’s favourites, The White Elephant Beach Café. With fantastic views over the ocean, it’s also an excellent place for whale watching from August to December. Following breakfast, see the beautiful Margaret River Mouth and a world-famous surf break at Surfers Point. Next, travel into the vibrant township of Margaret River to explore its eclectic mix of boutique stores and galleries.
Our last experience of the tour is a fantastic meet the maker experience. Join Tim & Cree at their iconic One Table Farm & Cooking School in Cowaramup for a tailor-made sourdough workshop, lunch and tour. During a demo, see all of the stages of how to make the perfect sourdough. And roll up your sleeves and get involved. Taste a variety of bread throughout the class and graze on the fresh farm to plate organic produce. Then, take a tour of the 100-acre sustainable farm they have created from scratch and hear their incredible story and vision.
Feeling relaxed, connected and satisfied, it’s time to mosey up the coast back to Perth, where your Guide will have you arriving around 6 pm.
