Dirk’s love of the Margaret River Region began as a child camping with his parents at Prevelly. Then as a teenager he explored many of the caves that are found here. Later with his own family during holidays he would rent a house and enjoy all the attractions. In 2006 Dirk and Pam moved to Margaret River to run a B&B and in 2016 he started Margaret River Nature Tours to share his love and knowledge of the region.
Dirk’s love of nature has been behind his career as a geologist and botanist. Now he is also passionate about the famous Margaret River wines.
Having visited the region over the years and now living in Margaret River for more than 9 years, he has discovered some of the beautiful places where you can experience the special nature of the region. But he also knows the places where you can discover the best in wine, beer and good food.
Dirk decided it was time to share his love and knowledge of the region to people who wanted to experience the best that the Margaret River Wine Region has to offer in terms of scenery, wine and food. So in February 2016 he bought a Hyundai 8 seater iMax people mover as it would comfortably seat 7 passengers. He also obtained all the necessary licenses and insurances required by tour operators.
Since then he has enjoyed watching his guests be wowed by the scenery, think about how the soils developed and smack their lips tasting the fresh produce that is grown in the soil, particularly the wine.
