Oprah at Cape Mentelle Margaret River?

It is true, is Oprah Winfrey coming to Cape Mentelle Margaret River in Western Australia?

Well if local hopes, coupled with some possibility on my behalf I can only imagine that it would make complete sense to visit this iconic region of Western Australia.  We produce some of Australia’s finest wine (worlds best chardonnay Decanter Award 2010 to Cullen Wines),  in the top 10 best surf beaks around, award winning dining, spectacular scenery  and some of the most relaxing accommodation.

If I were Oprah Winfrey coming to Cape Mentelle Margaret River I would probably:

  • Fly into Perth Western Australia
  • Get a helicopter ride down with Margaret River Eco Star Helicopter Tours (who could show me the sights on the way) to Cape Mentelle
  • Enjoy an amazing award winning wine tasting of Cape Mentelle’s finest wine coupled with some sumptuous food
  • Then I would go on a personal tour of the region with the best guide around (Western Australian Guide of the Year 2010) Sean Blocksidge of Margaret River Discovery Co who would escort me effortlessly around the fines nature sites, views and a trip up the Margaret River in a canoe
  • I would then be dropped off by Sean at the finest of Margaret Rivers hotels Cape Lodge for one of the Finest 5* meals, voted in the top ten in the world for fodd in the Conde Naste Traveller’s Gold List, where your chef will be Tony Howell, I may then consider staying the night or may be not
  • And I would finish off my tour with a scenic helicopter ride back to Perth making sure we circled Cape Leeuwin and Cape Naturaliste just in case I might glimpse a view of one of the last migrating whales.

As you can imagine this, if I were Oprah touring Margaret River, I would have seen some of the finest sites around the South West corner of W.A and all in under a day.

Do I know that she is coming, NO.

Do I think it is possible that Oprah Winfrey could come to Cape Mentelle Margaret River, Western Australia? What do you think?

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.
