and beyond… Margaret River, West Australia

One of the reasons we travelled to West-Australia is… we are wine lovers. From Perth we drove to Margaret River, a paradise for wine lovers. We stayed in Cape Lodge, a beautiful place to stay. We loved the apartment suite, so big… The environment is very relaxed, very green and for runners a great place to run, so both we did. If you plan to stay in Cape Lodge, book a dinner in the restaurant, the food and the wine is really fantastic.

On the road to the winery we saw many kangaroos. I couldn’t resist taking a photo.

The first winery where we had our tasting was at McLeod Creek Wines. When we entered the estate we saw a man working in his garden with a bird on his shoulder, so funny…  After Mcleod Creek Wines we had a tasting at Voyager Estate. This estate is a totally different compared to McLeod Creek wines. Very big, white and perfect. To perfect to my taste… The next day we drove to Leeuwin Estate. Friends advised us to have a lunch at Leeuwin Estate. We did and we don’t regret it, fabulous food and delicious wine and served in a great setting.

We did not only stop at wineries and taste wines, we also drove to Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. From the top of the lighthouse you could see whales in the distance as well as the spot were the Southern Ocean meets the Indian Ocean.

If you are in bad physical shape don’t take the stairs to the top of the lighthouse…
