Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Western Australia / Margaret River Region / Margaret River / Caves Road
Caves Road is a 111km scenic route in the South West region of Western Australia. It connects western Busselton with Augusta, running along or to the west of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste ridge, and is an alternative route to Bussell Highway. Caves Road is also a major component of the route from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin, in what is known as the state's Capes Region.Plan to visit Caves Road during your Margaret River vacation using our convenient Margaret River trip builder app.
Starting at Bussell Highway in Abbey, west of Busselton, Caves Road initially heads west through Dunsborough to Yallingup. From there the road travels southwards, between the coast and Bussell Highway, which it rejoins at the northern edge of Augusta.
Caves Road forms the majority of Tourist Drive 250, which is named Caves Road Tourist Drive. The route runs from Cape Naturaliste, north-west of Dunsborough, to Cape Leeuwin, south of Augusta.
Most of the surfing locations that are on the coastline between Cape Leeuwin and Cape Naturaliste are accessed via Caves Road.
It is a narrow winding road in most parts, and much has been made of its picturesque quality and passage through Karri forest.

A family holiday drive, loved the scenery the beautiful trees and all the places to can explore along the way. Grace town, Hamelin Bay, all the caves, wineries and sculptures. Then beautiful Augusta..... more »
Beautiful countryside. Feels like you have been transported to another country. Well worth the effort to take in all the sights (and wineries!) along this very enjoyable route. more »
