Margaret River Region (WA) on 35mm

As the winter chills come through Canberra, I dream of WA summers. I visited home back in January and road-tripped down to the Margaret River Region (Western Australia). I stayed in Busselton, and spent the days lazing at different beaches in Dunsborough, Yallingup and Margaret River.

One of my favourites was Point Piquet, a quiet beach between Meelup and Eagle Bay. This was a great spot to escape the overcrowded beaches of Meelup Beach and for snorkelling around the rocks!

Margaret River was great for food, shopping and wine (mainly the wine). One of my favourite chill spots is Cape Mentelle, where you can watch an outdoor movie in the winery.

The beaches of Margaret River are best suited for surfing, which is unfortunately not one of my life skills. However, the beaches are still beautiful to relax, soak up the sun and take in the unique coastal landscapes.

One of the crowd favourites is Meelup Beach in Dunsborough, probably because it is a sheltered beach and has crystal clear waters.

Meelup Beach is probably one of the better snorkelling spots in the region, with lots of fish hanging around the shallow water around the rocks.

Definitely perfect for summer getaways.
