Getting the travel bug again! The Boy and I decided we’d save money and do small local-ish trips this year since we’ll be doing a massive one next year, so we’re thinking of just doing a long weekend along the south coast of Western Australia. The Margaret River region is known for its wines, cheeses, food, beaches, forests and generally just being an awesome place to visit, as well as only a few hours drive out of Perth. I’ve been a few times before in a group but have never been the trip planner; since it’s just the two of us this time I’m looking forward to doing a bit more exploring. It might be a bit chilly to stay on the beach for long, but I want to see the Yallingup Caves and maybe do some light trail walks. And obviously no trip down south can be without a visit to the Margaret River Chocolate Company, even if there is a store in Perth now.
Anyone got any recommendations for me? I’m hoping to get accommodation with some basic cooking facilities so we don’t have to eat out for every meal, but we’ll definitely be squeezing in a few good meals (and a good bit of wine) whilst we’re down there!
Here’s some pics from my last few trips to the region:
