Margaret River

After a short sojourn in Western Australia’s gateway city Perth, Judy heads south to the renowned Margaret River region in Western Australia’s South West. It’s not surprising that Lonely Planet rated this place as one of the World’s Top Ten Destinations for 2010. This compact region really does pack a punch! Towering forests, gourmet food and wine, sublime beaches and a laid back culture make the Margaret River the perfect holiday destination.
