PLAY margaret river heartland


The Margaret River Heartland farm has the Wilyabrup Creek running through it, and several acres of virgin Australian bush. This gallery of photos will give you an idea of the nature based activities you can enjoy here.

There is a walking trail through the forest, that guests are welcome to walk. (Dogs are welcome on a lead.)

Although surrounded by vineyards, you won’t find any vines at the farm. Instead, you’ll see other agricultural / farm pursuits: cattle, hay, and horses in resting paddocks.

Yes the cattle are friendly, and if you’re patient enough, they may even come close enough for a pat.

While walking the farm, there’s plenty of wildlife to keep an eye out for.

Kangaroos, of course.

Depending on the season, you might spot swallows teaching their babies to fly, hawks hunting field mice in the paddocks, or ngoolark (carnaby’s cockatoos — black birds with the white tails).

If you’re really lucky you’ll see karak (red-tail black cockatoos).

And if you’re really super buy-a-lotto-ticket lucky, you may even spot a cowara— the purple crowned lorikeet after which the town of Cowaramup was named.

Being countryside, there’s no light pollution so the star-gazing is phenomenal. Bring your woollies and be ready to recline under the stars for the ultimate “Sky TV” experience.

Most recently, a bush bath has been installed in the forest for lovers of forest bathing (literally!)
