In recent years we are seeing the warm weather often lasting into June in Margaret River. If you like calm fine days with light winds Margaret River is best in Autumn (March-May) which is less windy than Spring. However you may prefer visiting in Spring if you want to enjoy whale watching from the beautiful coastline or to see the wildflowers which carpet the Cape to Cape Track in mid-late Spring. Summer is ideal for beach swims and relaxing in your accommodation pool, and winter begs for a walk in the forest followed by a glass of red by the fire.
