Perth & Margaret River II

December 4, 2012 | Miscellaneous, Personal, Photography, Travel

Good morning! I thought I’d share part two of our trip to Margaret River with you this morning, just to change it up from all the Christmas stuff that’s been going on!

Most of these photos were taken in and around various wineries we went to. Actually now that I look at it – there are just 2 of the wineries here.. we visited many many more, trust me. But these two wineries were probably two of my favourites for completely different reasons.

The first one was a very small, privately run vineyard called Carpe Diem. We had to make an appointment to go and taste their wines, and their cellar door consisted of a shed in which we sat surrounded by all the wine making equipment. Even though it didn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of the other wineries, it was a fantastic experience being served and given the story of each wine by the wine-maker himself. It also helps that the wines were amazing!

On the other end of the spectrum was Voyager Estate (above), which was spectacular if only for the grounds alone (check out the homepage of their website!!). Sprawling green lawns, manicured gardens, roses, and of course fantastic food and wine. It was magnificent and well worth a visit.

On the way back to Perth we stopped by the Margaret River Berry Farm for some morning tea scones with jam and cream… oohhh yum. They also had a beautiful cottage garden full of the most beautiful, tiny birds! They gave us sugar so we could try feeding some, and we managed to attract some of these little honey eaters (well, I guess they’re honey eaters – they had a seriously long tongue!).

Oh what a great time we had. Just one more Perth post coming up in a couple of weeks.. I need to space them out so you don’t get tired of seeing all my photos! :)


  1. Great pictures! Love them!

  2. Gorgeous pictures – someday I’ll come to Australia I hope! :)

  3. My mum and I loved the berry farm and the sparkling strawberry wine was a massive winner for us! I wish we could get some over here. The birds are so cute, we sat eating scones and feeding them sugar too, fascinating to watch :) x
