Oktoberfest Draws 1000 Beer Lovers

Duckstein Brewery in Margaret River was an ideal venue for Oktoberfest festivities on Saturday despite the wet weather. Over 1000 guests enjoyed beers, bratwurst and bands throughout the afternoon with many dressed up in German-inspired lederhosen and dirndls. A friendly outfit competition took over the stage briefly with cheers from the audiences deciding the winners, but most of the entertainment was provided by Sydney-based rocker Aimee Francis and local band New SoundLand.

Morning Tea To Raise Funds For Wildlife

Parents and guests enjoyed a morning tea at the Margaret River Independent School earlier this week. Tours around the school premises and live entertainment by the school’s instrumental band kept everybody amused. Visitors enjoyed delectable cakes, tarts, sandwiches, scones and slices as well as tea served in traditional teacups. All proceeds from the event were donated to Fostering & Assisting Wildlife Needing Aid [FAWNA].

Stencil Artist Looking Forward To First Solo Show

Gracetown-based stencil artist Glenn Hegedus is looking forward to his debut solo exhibition in Margaret River over the weekend. ‘Addition By Subtraction’ will open at the Sugarman art space this Saturday from 6-8 pm and will run for six weeks. Glenn said that several of the items that will be on display were a result of the time he spent on the streets of Perth photographing homeless kids. For details or to RSVP for the exhibition launch, please contact Sam Oliver or Patrick Matan on 9758 7753.

New Banners To Draw Visitors To Augusta

The Augusta Margaret River Tourism Association has launched a new advertising campaign to attract visitors to Augusta. As motorists cross Karridale, they will find two large banners showing photos of Augusta icons to encourage them to pay a visit to the coastal town. One banner faces traffic coming from Brockman Highway whereas the other targets traffic approaching from Margaret River. The main message on each banner says: ‘Experience Amazing Augusta only 10 minutes away’.

About Benji

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for. I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.
