Beautiful Margaret River

We took a long weekend trip to the lovely Margaret River area of Western Australia.  Margaret River is a world-renowned wine producing region about 275 km south of Perth.  This region has a mild Mediterranean climate, and it was a wonderfully sunny and warm weekend for us.  We stayed in a two-bedroom flat at Abby Beach Resort in Busselton, with direct access to the beach in Geographie Bay.  The water was a glittering blue accent against the white sandy beach.



Margaret River region is dotted with dozens of wineries, independent breweries, olive orchards, and sheep and dairy farms.  We drove from Busselton to Augusta and back enjoying the scenery and samples of wine, beer, and food.  We journeyed through Yallingup (the place of love), Gracetown, Augusta, Karridale, Witchcliffe, Margaret River and Cowaramup.  We saw lighthouses at Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin.



We sampled a world of chocolates at Gabriel’s



Visited wineries in gorgeous settings



Found sheep who were also enjoying the vines



And lambs enjoying the sunshine



Drove down secluded country roads



Met an Emu out for a walk



And visited Australia’s only silk factory – note the amazing bright golden silk cocoons
