Margies Big Day Out specialises in guided tours of Margaret River and its surroundings for a jam-packed day filled with excursions, but should guests choose to stay on, here are a few tips from the pros to make their stay memorable.

A typical guided tour will usually include a gourmet lunch at a boutique brewery, but once everyone goes their separate ways, dinner may be in order to start off the night.

For The Love Of Food And Wine

  1. Miki’s Open Kitchen

This is an open kitchen eatery that specialises in tempura in a cozy setting where guests can observe Chef Miki and his team craft some of the most spectacular dishes made with local produce.

Miki’s Open Kitchen’s local wine list also includes Japanese beer and sake, but its probably best to make a booking in advance since they are a small establishment and immensely popular with locals and visitors alike.

  1. Settlers Tavern

Settlers Tavern is as local as it gets, but it’s also the place where country hospitality meets hearty, generous meals that are available from their menu all day. This is the place to enjoy the casual atmosphere of Margaret River.

The establishment showcases an award-winning wine list that serves over 25 brands per glass and around 500 local and international wines from some of the world’s most prolific producers.

  1. Margaret River Hotel

This place is a local landmark where friends meet, but it’s also a place where guests can book accommodation. That way they’ll be near a busy restaurant serving great pub fare and they’ll be a stone’s throw away from the hotel bar where locals line up for sporting events.

  1. Arc of Iris

Arc of Iris is situated right at the top-end of the main road and open every night at 6 pm for dinner which is usually an excellent affair. The establishment serves fantastic seafood and has garnered a reputation for their welcoming service.

Guests can expect a wine list that showcases Margaret River’s finest wine producers and a setting that is intimate and inviting.

  1. Swings Taphouse & Kitchen

For a casual night out in a place that creates the most inviting ambiance with open fires, massive walkways and arches, balconies, quiet corners, and large tables, guests can opt for this gorgeous taphouse.

It’s a place for romantic, candlelit dinners, but they also cater to larger groups who wish to enjoy comfort food and drinks for a festive night out on the town. This is yet another place where the unwavering hospitality of Margaret River shines through.

  1. Elkamo

This is the place for those visitors that have a taste for adventure. Elkamo creates new, vibrant, and innovative cocktails that makes a person swoon. Elkamo is all about the atmosphere that starts conversations, takes on the excitement, and creating a truly unique experience.
