• Sheltered beaches, bays and epic swells are dotted along the coast. Known internationally as one of the best big-wave surfing locations on Earth for consistently spectacular breaks, there are over 40 top spots along Margaret River's coast, with conditions ranging from powerful reef breaks to fun beach surf.

• Be amazed by more than 2,500 species of wildflowers decorating the coastal walking tracks and forests with vivid colour from August to November.

• Walk or train to the end of the Busselton Jetty, then meet the colourful fish and sea-life at the Underwater Observatory. At 1.8 kilometres, the jetty is the longest timber piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere.

• Head underground and explore the ancient limestone cave formations. Join an underground tour at Lake, Jewel, Mammoth or Ngilgi Caves.

• Walk a section or all of the Cape to Cape track. The track runs 135 kilometres from Cape Naturaliste near Dunsborough, to Cape Leeuwin near Augusta, with companies such as Cape to Cape Explorer Tours and Walk into Luxury offering guided walking tours.

• Climb the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, Australia's tallest mainland lighthouse, and see where the Southern Ocean and Indian Ocean meet. There's also the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, which has undergone a major upgrade and offers panoramic ocean views from a new observation platform, landscaped lawns, a nautical-themed playground and Lightkeeper's Inn Café.

• Jump on a charter boat and watch the whales frolic in Geographe Bay between June and November. Naturaliste Charters and All Sea Charters both offer whale watching tours departing from Dunsborough, Busselton and Augusta.

• Enjoy the great outdoors and go rock climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, eco quad biking, fat biking, horse riding and canoeing.
