natural connected prosperous
Just a three hour drive south of Perth and only 110km from end to end, The Margaret River Region is one of Australia’s most compact, yet strikingly diverse holiday destinations. It’s an enticing mosaic of pristine natural wonders, premium wineries, relaxed microbreweries, world-class restaurants, spectacular beaches, towering forests, inspirational artisans, warm and friendly locals, and a laid-back persona all of its own. From the tranquil waters of Geographe Bay in the north, down the ancient cave-carved Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, through picturesque vineyards and karri forest of the heartland, to the desolate beauty of Cape Leeuwin in the south, this is a place of astounding natural contrasts. Visitors will need at least a few days to explore the region; explore our local tourism association’s website to understand why!
Our local tourism association, the Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association (MRBTA), was established on 1 July 2015 and is the product of two previously competing entities, the Augusta Margaret River Tourism Association (AMRTA) and Geographe Bay Tourism Association (GBTA). These two award winning associations have over 50 years’ experience in destination marketing, visitor servicing and natural and historical asset management. They have been consistently recognised at a national and state level for their contributions to the tourism industry. The formation of the MRBTA marks the beginning of a new era in tourism for the Margaret River Region. It is not for profit incorporated association with more than 820 members, governed by a Board of nine Directors.
The MRBTA operates six tourist attractions – Lake Cave, Mammoth Cave, Jewel Cave, Ngilgi Cave, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse – and manages ground handling at Busselton Regional Airport. With the funds generated, it operates visitor centres in Busselton, Dunsborough, Yallingup and Margaret River, and markets the destination to intrastate, interstate and international visitors.
