Anyone who visits Western
Australia's Margaret River region can't stop talking

straight through it.
The drive starts
at Busselton, an aquatic playground that is widely
admired as one of the state's most beautiful seaside
spots. It then continues to the sandy retreat
Dunsborough, nestled on a quiet cove near the
impressive Cape Naturaliste.
Naturaliste is the perfect vantage point for
watching whales swim past as they migrate around the
coast line of Australia.
Only a short drive away, the town of Yallingup is a
popular holiday destination in the heart of the
stunning Margaret River wine country. This area is
home to wineries, breweries, restaurants, galleries,
