Located in the Margaret River region at the mouth of the Blackwood River, on the south west tip of Western Australia is this popular holiday town of Augusta. It is only 320 km from Perth and just 9 km from the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse where the Indian ocean and the southern ocean meet.

From here you can visit the many world-class wineries, or enjoy the pristine beaches, and the many aquatic activities including swimming, surfing, diving, boating and fishing. From June through to September there is the thrill of whale watching and then take some time out to visit the caves within the region.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
