For example, discover some of the beautiful waterfalls in Perth, like the 60 Foot Falls located in the Ellis Brook Valley, or the Lesmurdie Falls in the Mundy Regional Park. Hiking is not for you? Well you should hit the cider trail, or wine, or beer, instead! This way you will be able to discover different parts of Perth & surrounds, while trying our its local produce (and warming yourself up with a nice red wine glass). Lastly, a must do when visiting Perth & surrounds in winter, it's to visit the Fremantle Market, here you will be able to try the local winter produce, plus attend the Truffle Festival from the 23rd of July until the 25th.

When having sunny winter days in the Margaret River Region, it's a must to hike all, or parts, of the Cape to Cape Track, covering the whole coastine from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin. If you still want to discover the Margaret River Region without the hiking, then you should visit the Sugarloaf Rock or the Injidup Beach, two perfect spots to see the waves crashing or to relax and enjoy the beautiful Australian sunset.
