your first stop one of the luxe beach houses at Smiths Beach
Resort, within the Margaret River region.

its majestic coastal views, you'll also be surrounded by some
of the world's best wineries - over 150 of them - with their
cellars open for tastings.
WOW FACTOR Lamont's Restaurant & Bar at Smiths Beach.
