Frequently Asked Questions about Margaret River Tours

Weather conditions

At The Margaret River Discovery Company we consider every weather condition perfect exploring weather. Rain adds freshness to the landscape, wind adds a sense of drama to the walk, clouds allow for better photographs and sunshine, well, sunshine is always preferred, it’s just not guaranteed. Though we adapt our itinerary depending on weather conditions you should consider Margaret River often experiences four seasons in one day! As such we supply waterproof Mountain Designs jackets.

Gourmet or Eco tour?

It’s both. Think David Attenborough meets Jamie Oliver.
