A little way down the road we’ll stop at the breathtaking Meelup Beach where we’ll have some lunch and quick swim.

Saying goodbye to paradise (don’t worry there will be plenty more) it’s time tantalise those taste buds as we spend the whole afternoon tasting our way around the Margaret River region. We’ll visit boutique wineries, breweries, a chocolate factory and a cheese factory, sampling as we go.
