Maragaret River and Southwest Australia

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are traveling to Perth and Southwest Australia in late November and have 2 weeks to explore the region. We arrive in Perth after a long travel situation and will be spending 3 nights in Fremantle to recover and tour that area. We will then be heading south by car to the Margaret River region and on to Albany. I know these areas are not that far apart, but we'd like to spend a few nights in various places in this SW region. We will have 8 nights and prefer to spend a minimum of 2 to 3 in each place. We have narrowed down a few things we want to do. Whale watching tour out of either Dunsborough, Augusta or Albany, Surf lessons at Rivermouth in River, Treetop walk near Wadpole, visit some vineyards, and do some walking. We are in our fifties and like to get a lot of exercise in during the day, so we can have a nice dinner at night guilt free. We like to base ourselves in a nice location that is within walking distance to some good restaurants so we don't have to worry about driving at night. I would like to mix it up with different types of lodging, maybe beach, forest or vineyard, town, etc. I have found it hard to decide which towns to stay in. We don't need to stay anywhere luxurious, just as long as it is clean and comfortable. No more that $150 per night and would prefer less than that. Any suggestions on where to lay our heads at night would be much appreciated. Thanks!
