Margaret River & Southern WA Tops Lonely Planet’s Best in Asia Pacific

Margaret River & Southern WA Tops Lonely Planet’s Best in Asia Pacific

According to Lonely Planet, Margaret River & Southern WA is the best place to visit in Asia Pacific in 2019!

The fourth annual Best in Asia Pacific, which in 2019 was expanded to include Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, lists the top ten places to travel to.

Announcing Margaret River & Southern WA’s top-ranking, Lonely Planet enthused:

“Take one look at Meelup Beach and you’ll wonder where it’s been all your life: the West Australian bush parts to reveal ocean the hue of a Bombay Sapphire bottle, which is typical of the coastline stretching from Margaret River to the state’s south. Beyond the sand, some of the country’s slickest wineries, breweries and restaurants lie between tracts of tall-tree forest and kangaroo-dotted farmland.”

Lonely Planet added: “Locals have long felt their turf rivals the east coast travel trail; now, 17-hour direct flights from London to capital city Perth put it at Europe’s fingertips. Adding to the argument are coveted food and culture-amped festivals, from Gourmet Escape to Truffle Kerfuffle and Taste Great Southern. There’s also amazing surf, whales aplenty and DIY coastal hikes with paved sections, improving accessibility for all.”
