A beautiful January morning at Gnarabup


The Margaret River region enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate, so it’s a great place to visit any time of the year.

In summer (December-February) the days are generally warm and sunny and there is little rain. Nights can be cool, so bring a light jacket if your heading out in the evenings. The harvesting of grapes usually commences sometime in February.

In Autumn (March-May) the days get a bit cooler and often sunny, warm and calm with little wind. Nights can be cool to cold. The grape harvest is well underway offering plenty of opportunities to witness vintage in full swing.

Winter (June-August) is the rainy season, yet there are often plenty of glorious sunny days, with temperatures around 16-18 degrees Celsius. The mornings and evenings are cooler with temperatures falling to around 8 degrees Celsius.

In Spring (September-November), temperatures are mild and days start to get longer and warmer. This is the season for stunning displays of wild flowers and to see whales in Geographe and Flinders bay.
