Top Things to Do in Margaret River for a Long Weekend

Margaret River, in the picturesque South West of Western Australia, offers a variety of activities whether you want to relax, seek adrenaline-fueled adventures, or taste some of Australia's best wines.

Here are some of our favorite things to do in Margaret River during the Easter long weekend.

1. Take a Dip in the Injidup Natural Spa

Located about a 20-minute drive north of Margaret River town, the Injidup Natural Spa is one of the most stunning natural rock pools in the world. When the swell is just right, waves crash over the rocks, creating a natural waterfall into the pool. Visit early in the morning to beat the crowds, and don't forget to check out Injidup Beach for a swim.

2. Go for a Surf

Margaret River is famous for hosting a World Surf League (WSL) Pro event every year. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced surfer, there’s a break for everyone. Some of our favorites include Redgate Beach and Rabbits. If you don't have your own board, gear rentals are available.

3. Hike the Cape-to-Cape Track

The Cape-to-Cape track is a 135km coastal trail that stretches from Cape Leeuwin to Cape Naturaliste. If you prefer shorter hikes, the track can be split into more manageable sections. A popular choice is the route from the Cape Naturaliste car park to Sugarloaf Rock. For an enriched experience, book a Wadandi Cultural Cape Experience to learn more about the area's culture and history.

4. Take in the Azure Waters of Eagle Bay

For a relaxing beach day, Eagle Bay should be at the top of your list. With its stunning white sand and clear blue water, it's the perfect spot to soak up the Western Australian sunshine. Pack an esky full of Evans & Tate Wild Cape or Deep Woods Estate Rosé to enjoy.

5. Play with the Sting Rays at Hamelin Bay

Just a short drive south of Margaret River, Hamelin Bay is a long stretch of beach where you can find friendly sting rays swimming in the shallow waters. You can also watch dolphins playing further out to sea.

6. Visit the Evans & Tate Cellar Door

A trip to Margaret River isn’t complete without visiting one of its pioneering wineries, Evans & Tate. Recently celebrating 50 years, their wines are among the region's most awarded. Try some exclusive museum releases available only at the cellar door, located at the corner of Caves and Metricup Road. Open daily from 10:30am to 5:00pm (closed Easter Friday and Easter Monday).

7. Work Up a Sweat Mountain Biking

Margaret River offers mountain biking tracks for all levels. Rent a bike from Hairy Marron Bike Shop and choose a trail that suits your adventure level, from leisurely family rides to adrenaline-packed trails.

8. Walk Through the Majestic Underground Mammoth Cave

Explore one of the region's limestone caves with self-guided, wheelchair-accessible trails at Mammoth Cave. Discover ancient fossil remains from giant animals that lived over 50,000 years ago.

9. Watch the Windsurfers at Main Break

In the afternoon, head to Main Break to watch wind and kite surfers. Enjoy local fish & chips from the food truck while taking in the action.

10. Kayak Down the River at the River Mouth

Hire kayaks at the River Mouth and paddle down the serene river towards town, enjoying a peaceful experience with no motorboat or vehicle access for at least 3 km. Stand-up paddleboards are also available for hire.

11. Taste Wines at the Deep Woods Estate Cellar Door

Located in the heart of the Yallingup Hills, the rustic Deep Woods Estate cellar door is a must-visit. Home to award-winning wines, including top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, it's a perfect stop on your way to Margaret River. Open daily from 10:30am to 5:00pm during school holidays (closed Good Friday).
