Things to do in the Margaret River Region that don't involve wine

While you'll never run out of amazing wine experiences in the Margaret River Region, a plethora of great wine needn't over shadow the other great adventures that can be found in this stunning Australian holiday destination.

Here's some non-wine focussed top picks from Pullman Bunker Bay Resort's Director of Rooms, Sean De Souza. 

Things to do in the Margaret River Region that don't involve wine

1. Get up to some “Monkey business”
Located just minutes away from Pullman Bunker Bay Resort you'll discover the recently opened zip line at Next Level Monkey Business. Challenge family and friends on the exhilarating, adrenaline pumping ropes course and zip-lines. A fun day out for the whole family and all ages.

2. Embrace craft beer & cider
For the beer connoisseurs, impressive local craft beer can be found no more than a five minute drive from Pullman Bunker Bay Resort. Eagle Bay Brewing Co. features single batch brews specifically created to suit the season. Further down the road takes you to the Cheeky Monkey Brewery and Cidery; and not forgetting Black Brewing Co - all great local craft beers.

3. Surf's up
Surfing is a daily ritual Pullman's Duty Manager Roberto Manganelli loves. His passion for surfing in the region leaves many wishing they could have the same surf/life work balance. Taking on the waves as soon as day breaks. Roberto’s favourite spots are Left Handers, Grace town and Boodjidup. These unique spots dot the costal landscape stretching from Pullman Bunker Bay at the top end of the region, through to Cape Leeuwin. Learn more about the region's big wave surfing.

For grommets and those wanting to learn to surf, solo, family and group surfing lessons are available through Yallingup Surf School. You're never too old to test your skills and join the fun.

4. Scenic trails  
Tackle the stunning tracks surrounding Cape Naturaliste on foot or mountain bike. Endless tracks will leave you in awe of the serenity of many tracks that cross the landscape. For the more adventurous, take on all or a portion of the Cape the Cape track, stretching 123km’s of sun-kissed beaches. The choice of tracks are endless and give you the opportunity to meander through the wine region and its picturesque farms.

5. Selfies at sunrise
Rise early and be rewarded. We recommend guests take a short drive to enjoy the sunrise from Injidup natural spa. Located 30 minutes' drive from Pullman Resort, this is a natural wonder is a must-see stop whilst visiting the area and is very popular with Instagrammers looking for brag-worthy selfies. It’s a small hike from the car park to the springs, but well worth the effort.

6. Cultural feast & forage 
If you are interested in learning more about the oldest culture in the world, immerse yourself in the Djiliit Coastal Fishing Experience. Run by the nephew of one of our local Wardandi Elders at Cape Cultural Tours – you'll get to experience everything from catching and cooking your own fish on the beach (fish not guaranteed) and bushfood foraging to learning Wardandi history while taking in a coastal bush walk. This is more than a tour, it’s a unique experience you'll treasure for years to come.
