The event takes place at the globally renowned surf spot, Surfers Point, also called Margaret River Main Break. This is a famous “big wave” venue and consistently offers fantastic waves between 3 and 15 ft all year round.

Recipe of the Month

Our recipe of the month is shared to us by Jenny of Wulura. Enjoy this sumptuous delicacy that is just mouth-watering!

Hazelnut & Orange Olive Oil Cake

Image from Wulurafarm.com


3 Eggs
1 cup (215g) castor sugar
¾ cup (185ml) Wulura Extra Virgin Olive Oil
¼ cup (60ml) Frangelico or orange flavoured liqueur
1 cup (150g) plain flour
½ cup (55g) hazelnut meal
2 tsp baking powder
1 tble finely grated orange rind
½ cup (75g) toasted hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
Double cream to serve


Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.  Grease and line the base of a round 20cm (base measurement) springform pan with baking paper.

Use an electric mixer to whisk the eggs and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale.  Add the oil and liqueur and whisk until just incorporated.  Add flour, hazelnut meal, baking powder and rind of orange and use a metal spoon to gently fold until just combined.  Pour mixture into the prepared pan.  Sprinkle with hazelnuts evenly over the top and bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Remove from oven and set aside to cool in the pan.  Serve with cream, if desired.

Something to Drink

The finest Muscat grape, the Muscat Rosa À Petits Grains is used to create Stella Bella Pink Muscat. The Pink Muscat is inspired by the Italian Moscato d’Asti wine from the Piedmont region in Italy’s north, which is made from this same grape. The wine is grapey, low in alcohol and lightly ‘frizzante’ (semi-sparkling).

I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.
