Welcome to Winter Down South!

Winter is when whales come to play and the ocean is in full force. It’s when the landscape comes alive with vibrant green farmlands, misty mornings and moody skies. It’s when truffles are ready for plucking, and fires are ready for lighting. Watch a storm roll in where the Southern and Indian oceans meet, enjoy rushing cascades and waterfalls inland, while the rugged granite coastline puts on a show. It’s a time to recharge the batteries and reconnect with family and friends.

And the best part of winter? There are no crowds to be seen and there’s some great accommodation and attraction specials. Read on below for winter inspiration and to start planning your Winter Down South in Geographe, the Margaret River region, the Great Southern and Southern Forest and Valleys.
