Our Top Four Things to do in the Margaret River region this Easter


Easter gives you the opportunity to explore and enjoy Margaret River over four full days, and trust us when we say even the extra two days of adventure will not be enough! Check out some of the places we recommend visiting over 30th-2nd of April.

Tip One

Take a trip down to the quirky Margaret River Bakery! From the exterior, it is quite easy to be fooled into thinking it is any old bakery but once inside this hidden gem truly comes to life. The eclectic and homely décor makes it a go-to place for locals and visitors alike, so why not head to this jewel of Margaret River for a tasty breakfast of stupendous baked goods!

Tip Two

Stock up on all things chocolate. Seriously, if you don’t, can you really even classify it as Easter? Since its opening in 1999, The Margaret River Chocolate Company has become one of Western Australia’s most popular tourist destinations. Head in, grab a light lunch with a side of chocolate of course and do not forget to take some chocolate eggs home for later.

Tip Three

Only 13 kilometers from Dunsborough is the newly renovated Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse. The huge upgrade includes a brand new viewing deck and a super cozy café for you to relax have a coffee and enjoy your surroundings. The view is incredible with a 360-degree perspective from above the trees on their fancy new slab of timber. Check it out on Easter Monday after your afternoon hike, through one of the many awesome trails!

Tip Four

Chef Aaron Carr, Margaret River local and long-time friend of Gourmet Escape has recently opened up a new restaurant in Dunsborough named Yarri. Their menu reflects the six seasons of WA’s Nyungar people and country with a focus on sustainable ingredients. If you are not feeling like cooking at all over the long weekend, make sure to book your table to ensure you don’t miss out.
