Western Australia road trip: Explore the wilderness around Margaret River!

It’s best-known for its international reputation as one of the best big-wave locations on Earth, however, surfing is just one of many unforgettable outdoor experiences on offer while at Margaret River and Western Australia’s South West.

Whether it’s hiking, canoeing or exploring ancient caves – there is no shortage of things to do!

Jumping on an electric quad-bike with EcoAventures is definitely an experience that comes highly recommended.

The bikes are safe and easy to operate and the views you get to take in along the way make it more than worthwhile at whatever pace you’re comfortable with.

The fresh air you get to soak in while cruising through the Boranup Forest really is something to savour, particularly for those used to living in the city.

It stays with you.

It may seem obvious, given the town’s name, but the “river” at Margaret River is somewhat of a hidden gem.

It’s just minutes from the township itself, but once you get there you feel completely isolated.

Making a booking with the The Margaret River Discovery Company is a must, if you want a complete experience.

It’s a unique adventure, literally, with almost 80 per cent of the local plant life found nowhere else on earth.

So you can truly say there’s no experience like it.
