Are you a bit of an adventurer, but like to enjoy a nice glass of wine as well? Then Harvest Tours has the perfect country escape for you! Our Indulge and Discover Tour covers all your bases, with opportunities to explore impressive caves and marvel at picturesque ocean views, while still stopping to sip premium wines and taste local, gourmet produce. Our passionate team has over 10 years of experience, and so your local guide will also give a knowledgeable, informative commentary on the region while you enjoy the sights and experiences.
The highlight of our Margaret River discovery tour is definitely visiting Lake Cave - where you will have an adventurous experience entering into a cave from the floor of a stunning sunken forest surrounded by soaring karri trees. This fascinating underground wonderland features a calm lake that perfectly mirrors the crystal formations growing at its edges, as well as the impressive ‘suspended table’ that hangs just above the surface of the water.
You will need to bring sensible walking shoes for this section of the tour, so that you can explore the cave unhindered, and really take in the experience. It is the deepest of the show caves on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, and a ‘must-see’ attraction for any visitor to the region.
After having a few wine and coffee tastings, and working up an appetite exploring Lake Cave, your next stop is Brookland Valley Estate. Here you will enjoy a more relaxing, luxurious part of the journey, with a three-course lunch and complimentary glass of wine at Flutes Restaurant. This fine dining restaurant sits in an idyllic location, overlooking Wilyabrup Brook and the surrounding vineyards. Here, you will taste a range of delicacies made by their executive chef Francois Morvan, who uses a combination of French training and a love of local, seasonal produce to create a unique and delicious menu.
We will stop at a variety of wineries and gourmet food eateries throughout the tour, but we also aim to show you the harsh beauty of our isolated region through visits to iconic locations like Prevelly Beach. This beach is renowned for its surf breaks, and so the view from atop the hill, overlooking the stunning beach and crashing waves, is an ideal photo opportunity - you can even see the mouth of the Margaret River meeting the ocean. Our visit to Prevelly Beach is the perfect way to leave a lasting impression of our magnificent region on your mind.
We know what you will be craving this early in the morning - so we have organised a stop at Yahava to be first on our list.
To kickstart the discovery part of our journey, we will be exploring Lake Cave for the second stop on the tour.
We will then head back towards the wineries, making sure we stop at Prevelly Beach for a photo opportunity.
Here, you will taste some premium wines from a minimal intervention, biodynamic vineyard, along with a selection of free-range meats.
For lunch, we will head to Flutes Restaurant at Brookland Valley Estate - you can also enjoy a wine tasting before the three-course lunch.
The next stop is Fermoy Estate, where you can enjoy some more fine wine tastings from a winery that has received awards such as ‘The World’s Best Cabernet’.
It’s time for a wine tasting break, so we will visit Vasse Virgin to check out their range of gourmet foods and have the opportunity to try some olive oil skincare products.
After all this excitement, you will probably be ready for something sweet, and Gabriel Chocolate Factory’s range of award-winning gourmet chocolates are the best choice.
For the perfect end to the day, we will visit Marri Wood Park for some traditionally made, eco-friendly wines, paired with gourmet cheeses from the Yallingup Cheese Company.
Before heading home, we will also stop at Wild Hop Brewing Company for a palate cleansing pint of ale or lager.
