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.


  1. This tours definitely are a great tourist product. I would love to visit Australia.

    What is great about the Margaret River region is the massive range of things you can do. There is plenty of adventurous activities to do along with enough coastline to spread out on and relax, not to mention the food! Great post.


  7. Australia Girl says:

    Margaret River is great for wine tours. I went a couple years ago and had a great time.

  8. I love going on wine tours of the wineries near my home town, Santa Barbara California. I also love Australian wine. I recently tried a 2007 Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay, which I believe is from the Margaret River area, that was wonderful.

    I fully intend to visit Australia one day, and a Margaret River wine tour is definitely on my bucket list.

  9. Hi Benji,
    Thanks for the information. I think the chauffeur driven tour of Margaret River Wineries would be my pick. To be driven around and not have to worry about how many tastings you’ve had sounds like bliss!

  10. I went for the Cheers Tour. We had a very jovial and knowledgeable guide. The tour took us to 3 small vineyards. The lunch provided was pretty good too.

    Hi Benji,
    I use to live in Bunbury just north of Margaret River and this was one of my favorite places to visit.
    Even though now I live in NSW I very rarely buy a wine that is not from Margaret River. Ummmm maybe tooooo nice 🙂

  12. Hi Benji,
    I’m a member of a wine club and get wines delivered to my door from all around Australia 4 times a year. I have to say, I’ve never been disappointed with the wines from Margaret River. The Margaret River winery tours sound fantastic.

  13. Hello Benji,

    Oh I am such a red wine lover. I really enjoy a good red, it only takes more than two glasses and then I am asleep!!! Love the idea of the Helicopter tour, that sounds like a great way to see Margaret River Winery Tours.

  14. David the Caves are outstanding and I can highly recommend them, it does not matter which you pick you will love it. Mammoth cave is particularly good right now in spring as you can not only see the cave but the wild flowers are amazing in the surrounding bush.
    Christopher, well you know how to travel in style and yes you will see some truly breathtaking country side and shore line.

  15. Hi Benji,

    What a beautiful place in the world to live you lucky son of a gun!! I’m afraid I am not a lover of wine but I would enjoy a tour around the area just the same.

  16. One way I could definitely do a Margaret River Winery Tour would be by helicopter. Not only would you be able to see many winery’s in one day but to be able to take in the fantastic views and country side.

  17. Hi Benji,

    I visited Margaret River about 2 years ago (how time passes). It was actually my first time in WA. Although I didn’t take any Margaret River winery tours it was extremely clear that this region was something special. Lovely green surroundings and some great caves.
