Tall timber forests, dramatic coastline and WA's most bountiful producer, the Margaret River region is a great base for nature lovers with a week or more up their sleeve. Taste marron, truffles and local produce in the towns of nearby Pemberton, and Manjimup. Go on a tour to spot majestic southern right and humpback whales (June to early December) from Augusta and Dunsborough. Trek some, or even all, of the Cape to Cape Track, one of Australia's most spectacular coastal walks, or amble through the forest canopy, 40 metres above the ground, along Walpole's Valley of the Giants Treetop Walk.
