Change things up with these side-trips from Margaret River: Dunsborough (Simmo's Icecreamery & Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse), Augusta (Jewel Cave & Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse) and Happs Winery and Cellar Door (in Quindalup). There's lots more to do: indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, Head underground at Giants Cave, stroll through Gnarabup Beach, and enjoy the sand and surf at Margaret River Mouth Beach.
