With the exciting announcement of non-stop Jetstar services from Sydney to Busselton-Margaret River, it’s never been easier to explore the premium wines, world-class breaks and towering forests of this region. The direct flight unlocks a new link between the East Coast and Western Australia, a gateway to indulgence and adventure in the South West.

Taking off from 26 March 2024, the first-ever, direct Sydney to Busselton-Margaret River route will operate three times a week alongside the existing non-stop Melbourne service, offering even more choice for East Coast holidaymakers to travel to Western Australia.

Departing on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the new Jetstar Airbus A320 flight will take just five hours, saving Sydneysiders two hours compared to an indirect route via Melbourne.

It’s a seamless connection with more time on the ground to savour one of Western Australia’s most iconic destinations with world-class waves and wine.

Freedom of flavours

With more than 50,000 seats available on the Sydney to Busselton-Margaret River service per year, that’s a lot of opportunity to sample all that Australia’s most premium wine region has on offer.

The Margaret River Region is home to more than 150 winemakers and 100 cellar doors, just ripe for a self-guided road trip or a guided tour with a local expert.

Join an indulgent Helicopter Wine Tour for the ultimate taste test of top drops in the region, or an Estate Tour that goes beyond the cellar door for the true oenophile.

Add in a fantastic foodie scene with award-winning restaurants, local providores and artisan distilleries, and it’s easy to fill a week, a weekend or more. Discover the indulgent side of the region with Harvest Tours or partake in the delightful Wine, Scones, Local Produce & Nature Tour, which hits all the highlights.

World-renowned surf

Margaret River’s spectacular coastline has earned a reputation as a destination for consistent big-wave surf breaks and has delivered more than a few world-champion wave riders. Located just 10 minutes from Margaret River town, be sure to visit Surfers Point where the Margaret River Pro is held over April-May each year.

Beyond board riding, holidaymakers can also go snorkelling, canoeing, kayaking and swimming along the coast where the azure sea touches the rugged rock and sandy beaches. You can even spy whales during their annual migration.

Find a secluded stretch of pristine white sand at Smiths Beach, Meelup Beach, Eagle Bay and Bunker Bay. There’s even the Margaret River Swimming Adventure Day experience if you enjoy swimming and wish to explore new places.

Busselton Jetty, which disappears into the horizon is the longest timber-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. The 1.8km jetty is the perfect place for immersing yourself in the aquatic landscape without getting wet. Be sure to check out the new underwater sculptures.

Hike, bike and wander

With towering karri forests and ancient caves, the Margaret River Region has an otherworldly backdrop to explore on its many biking and hiking trails.

Enjoy the stunning coastline on the 124km Cape to Cape Track. Cape to Cape Explorer Tours offers an eco-friendly way to take on the multi-day hiking trail, while Walk into Luxury provides a guided experience paired with gourmet provisions and luxe accommodation.

The Wadandi Track is a local favourite for hiking or mountain biking, passing through forests full of birdlife with creeks and picnic spots along the way.

Or witness the Indian Ocean from Australia’s most south-westerly point, the historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse.

Connect with culture

Connect with Aboriginal culture on Wadandi and Bibbulmun Country. Koomal Dreaming offers the opportunity to learn from the area’s Traditional Owners.

Going underground tells another story again. The Margaret River Region has a network of 150 limestone caves within Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge. Ngilgi Cave, the first cave open to visitors in Western Australia, is steeped in local Aboriginal lore and rock formations – best shared on a Twilight Didgeridoo Cave Tour or Ancient Lands Experience.

The newly opened Yallingup Aboriginal Art Gallery in Margaret River exhibits pieces crafted by award-winning Aboriginal artists.
