A postcard from friend Rachel who’s currently touring around Australia.
Rachel says at this time of year south-western Australia is warm during the day but still nice and cool at night. Ideal spring weather.
The Margaret River region of WA is one of Australia’s premier wine-making districts. It also has some fantastic beaches, and some significant sites of Early European settlement.
It is thought that Margaret River is named after Margaret Wyche, who was a cousin of the founder of nearby Busselton, John Garrett Bussel.
