7. Unique Landmarks
Margaret River is all about natural landmarks that has been around for hundreds of thousands of years. One of the most famous would be the Jewel Cave, which is home to the longest straw stalactite in any of Australia’s show caves . It really is awe inspiring going underground and seeing how spectacular the cave is. Seeing the formations in the cave is truly a unique experience in seeing the formations in the cave.
Another highlight would be the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouses, which give a huge insight to the maritime history. Leeuwin Lighthouse is the tallest on mainland Australia. It sits right on the point on the map where the Southern and Indian oceans meet. An interesting fact of the lighthouse location would be that, it was there that the mapping of Australia first began. Do you need to be persuaded further?

Although, there is no shortage of family- friendly activities in the Margaret River region, a Margaret River stay cannot be complete without a farmstay experience, while relishing what the region has to offer.
