Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Well worth the tour particularly with the accompanying earphone guides throughout.
    Not very arduous for those who are older like us and very interesting in the viewing and listening throughout the tour

    Absolutely stunning bay with the added bonus of regular visits of large stingrays who cruise up and down the beach. Toilets and showers available as you leave the beach

    A not for profit sanctuary doing great work to educate while entertaining visitors.
    Watching the birds in flight (select times per day) is a must, even the teenagers were surprisingly entertained!!

    What a fabulous place. 20 min drive from Margaret River and on the way we were wondering if it would be worth it, but I had seen some recipes from their website and wanted to buy some of the products. It was totally a highlight of our trip to the region - very relaxing, fabulous cottage garden, and a proper licenced cafe with a great menu. We were there in the morning, not expecting it to be more than a morning tea kind of place, but would have loved to be there at lunchtime as the full menu looked awesome. We had tea/coffee and shared a scone (very big) and the boysenberry pies coming out looked huge. Staff were lovely and the atmosphere in the garden was super relaxing. We went into the farm shop to stock up on chutneys and jams as well. Will definitely go back there on another trip down South and go at lunchtime for a proper meal.

    This is a stunning little beach which is really safe for swimmers and children. There is also a boardwalk from the car park stretching right around to the opposite headland. The walk takes about 40 each way and offers some great views.
    My only advice would be, keep your lunch covered up as the seagulls can be a bit of a pest,

    Take the drive from the very south at Hamelin Bay and go through to Dunsborough. Stop wherever the opportunity is. Deer Farm. Wineries. Beaches. Caves. Up to you but take this road rather than the highway and take in the forests and the side diversions.

    This great place has just changed hands so they are renovating. Meaning you can't have any cafe food for now, but there is ice cream and the coffee is fabulous.

    I would highly recommend a visit. We were looking for a way to get our of the heat after several beach days and thought this would take care of an hour or two, but we spent well over 3 hours here with our two boys. The illusions are brilliant, our boys went over them again and again. We then went outside for a play, sat down for an ice cream and coffee while having a go at the mind puzzles and then the kids went back in again.

    It's a bargain for the entry fee. Once renovations are done, this will be a gem of the region.

    Beautiful place for a sunset. Lovely region with wineries, many caves and 2 lighthouses. Was here primarily to shoot at the Surf Pro.

    The size and number of trees is amazing. Just beware that there is not a way to walk through the forest, so the best views are from the road

    We visited this vineyard as one of three on a wine tour of Margaret River via Harvest Tours. I can’t remember the lady’s name that looked after us but she was the daughter of Steve, our driver for the day and both are very knowledgeable and interesting. We tried 12 different wines and also were given a small plate/taster of cheese, meat and a biscuit. Very enjoyable.

    This was the last vineyard on our full-day’s tour so our group had all got to know one another a bit however, the friendly, funny yet knowledgeable host and owner Matt made this visit extra special for us.
    He easily blended interesting facts about the development of his vineyard with jokes and banter throughout the tastings so we all felt relaxed and at ease.
    Next time we go we may take up the option of their campground, which includes complimentary wine tasting too…
    It almost goes without saying that we bought a few bottles to enjoy at home, including their ‘pièce de resistance’ wine that’s fortified - imaginatively abbreviated to WTF!

    It may not be the easiest place to swim but it was very pretty with stretches of sand, rocky outcrops and good surf. A vey pretty place on a sunny day.

    Located in the TAFE just away from the main area of the township of Margaret River. Was quite busy - would suggest getting there earlier rather than later. There were a few coffee vans, pancake, dumpling, gelati type of vendors for a quick breakfast. A number of wineries and local cottage food suppliers. A few fruit & veg places as well.

    We were able to pick up fresh produce for brunch. It wasn't big, it wasn't small. For a rural market - it had a fair bit. We spent a little under an hour there but you could spend more.
