Climate
Dunsborough has a Mediterranean climate - wet winters, hot summers. In winter most of the rain comes with low pressure systems and is accompanied by windy storms. In between storms are many days of beautiful sunshine, but cold nights. Summer is beach weather. The temperatures are milder than Perth, and the sea breezes are gentler.


How To Get Here:
The Margaret River Wine Region, which extends westward from Busselton in the north to Augusta in the south, is just 250 kilometres south west of Perth. Whilst this picturesque region is literally on the doorstep of Western Australia's capital city, it is a world away from the hectic hustle and bustle of city life. A holiday Down South is truly the perfect escape!

Those on a self-drive itinerary will enjoy the comfortable 2.5 - 3 hour drive south west from Perth via excellent sealed highways.

CHARTER flights are also available into both Busselton and Margaret River and are operated from Perth by Air Australia & The Aeroplane Company. For bookings, contact Air Australia on (08) 9332 5011 or The Aeroplane Company on (08) 9417 9088.
