At the centre of the Margaret River Wine Region
lies a charming town called Cowaramup, named by the Aborigines after the purple crowned lorikeet, Cowara, that once inhabited the area.
Originally a timber town in the 1930’s it offers easy access to the surrounding wineries, beaches, surf and bush. Beef, sheep, dairy and viticulture industries all thrive in the area. Visitors are welcome to gain an insight into the workings of each industry. Tasting of the local wines, cheeses and fudge is a highly recommended activity, and you can also taste organically grown olive oil. There are a large number of well known boutique wineries surrounding Cowaramup just waiting to be explored.
Visitors will find arts and crafts on sale in town, prolific birdlife in the surrounding area, as well as dazzling wildflower displays in season.
Cowaramup offers a range of accommodation from farmstays, where visitors can experience the day-to-day activities on the farm, to five star retreats.
