A calm descends on the region as we hunker beside fires indoors as the moodier weather rolls in. Margaret River is host to many well-kept secret gems in winter, explore at your leisure.
THE WINE LOUNGE
Perhaps we are biased, however, winter in our Wine Lounge offers a cozy reprieve from drizzling skies. Best enjoyed by the fire and nursing a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon along with charcuterie and cheese watching last leaves fall from soon to be dormant vines.
The Wine Lounge is open daily 10am - 5pm, with no reservations required.
A WINTER PIE AND PINT
An absolute hidden gem, Pies & Ale is tucked away in the Boranup Forest. Offering innovative flavour combinations, these fresh and delicious homemade pies are accompanied by a fantastic selection of beers. Flip the menu and you will find a glass of Filius Shiraz available.
The region’s unrivalled coastline is arguably more breathtaking in the chillier months as wild swells and moody winter skies roll in. Bring a blanket, grab a hot chocolate from White Elephant café and watch the waves roll in at Gnarabup Beach, or have a dip if you’re feeling brave. You may even be lucky enough to spot migrating whales as they travel north for warmer waters.
COSY COFFEE AND CROISSANTS
Do not be deceived by this small sized bakery, Egberts is a croissant lovers heaven! With a well-stocked
cabinet and a glorious selection of tempting fresh pastries, swing by and try their house blend. Grab a table inside or rug up and enjoy watching the world go by on nearby benches in the heart of town.
With a fabulous retro-inspired fit out, this new small neighbourhood bar has quickly become a favourite of locals and visitors alike. Pearl’s Bar showcases a delicious range of beers and wines from local independent producers, as well as a cleverly curated menu of bar snacks and cocktails to boot!
