SETTLERS TAVERN Tijuana Cartel Thursday 18 January, 9:30pm                                                    Tijuana Cartel is an East Meets West wonderland and we can never get enough of them. A sensory overload, euphoria, fat beats and heavy, bass-fuelled electronica live band. The band started as a couple of guitars and with the aid of a few computers, synthesisers, a percussionist & trumpeter they’ve managed to weave their way into some sort of Indy-Electronica-world-music movement.Their live set is a sensory overload driven by house beats, infused with trumpet, percussion and frantic middle eastern guitar lines blending layers of rich, intricate and atmospheric soundscapes with laid-back rhythms and luscious vocals.

BREWHOUSE  BREWERY is located 80 meters from Edge Of The Forest – Every Friday there is live music from mainly local musicians as well as national and international artists. Music kicks off in the arvo from 5:00pm so kick back with some great grub, a clean crisp ale and listen to some fun tunes from our open deck.   Each Sunday you can expect live music throughout the entire year. In Summer we’ll also have a DJ playing til late. So make Sunday Sessions @ Brewhouse Margaret River a ritual for families and friends. Enjoy the music, the food and the beers from our beer garden, by our cosy fire or from our indoor-outdoor deck.

EVERY SAT & SUN  – December till April Beerfarm hosts Live Music every Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Quality Blues, Country, Bluegrass and Rock n Roll frequent our stages but keep your ears and eyes open, as we ain’t scarred to do things a little different round here, ya all….The venue opens from 11am on summer weekends and live sets are typically under way by 3pm.  Rain or shine you better believe we are going to get down either,  ‘Out Back’ on our stage production where we can really crank up and fly free.  Or inside with foot tappin’, bar slappin’, bottle rockin’ good times.  Watch this and our Facebook space for details as they come but be assured that live music has a safe home down on the Farm every weekend.

Stay at Edge Of The Forest Margaret River Accommodation then go on a whale watching tour

Each year Humpback and Southern Right whales journey from Antarctica to the Margaret River region. Flinders Bay in Augusta from June to September.  Whale watching here is a very unique experience because it’s one of the few places in the world where you can observe Southern Right and Humpback whales interacting.  From September to December the whales move up to the more sheltered Geographe Bay.  Endangered Blue Whales have also been spotted here.

Cape to Cape Track

Our Margaret River Accommodation is a great base to walk the Cape to Cape Track

In the far south west corner of Western Australia, a broad peninsula projects into the Indian Ocean.  Running north to south along its western edge, between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin, is a windswept limestone ridge, perched on a basement of ancient and resistant granite rocks. This long thin strip of land forms the backbone of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, and is the setting of the Cape to Cape Walk Track, a 140 kilometre long trail
