Margaret River Region, Western Australia

The Margaret River Region

Producing 20% of Australia’s premium wine, this region is a wine lover’s dream. It is also one of the greatest areas of Western Australia. Rolling wineries, next to amazing surf, with locals that are as diverse at the region itself. The Margaret River region in the South West of Western Australia is the place to be if you’re free spirited, love nature and enjoy the country life.

Known for its food and wine (as well as the surf – hello Margaret River pro), it boasts some of the best vegan food and turmeric lattes this girl has had. The region itself extends from Busselton to Augusta along the coast and has some awesome tourist pit stops along the way.

Using seasonal, local and sustainable ingredients tends to be the way of life here. You can get truffle infused anything, and chocolate galore. There are not too many places you can’t get an amazing vegan meal, even the breweries are getting on board.

Where to eat

Margaret River

  • RiversmithA cafe along the main strip of Margaret River. Great food and an awesome concept store at the back.
  • The Brewshack Espresso BarAcross the road from Riversmith with raw treats and a great turmeric latte.
  • Swings: The restaurant in town centre to accompany the cellar door along Caves Road. Try the brussels sprouts.


  • Mana KaiFully vegetarian cafe in the town centre. It’s at the end of a shopping alleyway, so can be a bit harder to find.
  • Urban Coffee House: Not fully vegan, however some amazing food and one of the best breakfasts I have had.

How to get to the Margaret River Region

Perth is the capital city of Western Australia, located approximately 250km north of the region. The area is best seen by car, and therefore is best to hire a car to drive along Caves Road and explore the south west.

Give yourself at least a couple of days for exploring, there’s so much to see!

    Hi, it doesn’t seem you know that the longest operating cafe in Margaret River, The Urban Bean, has become vegetarian/vegan! With the chefs all being vegetarian/vegan we know how to make veggies taste great, coffees pretty amazing too. Hope you head to the top of town and check us out x
