Just three hours’ drive or 45 minutes flight south of Perth, the Margaret River Region is one of Australia’s most compact, yet strikingly diverse holiday destinations.
Situated in the heart of the region is Smiths Beach Resort, your ultimate beachside escape.
Pure heaven for beach lovers, Smiths Beach Resort is perfectly positioned on the pristine sands of Smiths Beach overlooking the sparkling Indian Ocean. Nestled between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin on the stunning Cape to Cape walking track, Smiths Beach Resort is centrally located to the town sites of Dunsborough, Yallingup and Margaret River.
The most common option is to arrive by vehicle as the region lends itself very well to self drive or touring. All major hire car companies are available from Perth Airport or Perth City and luxury chauffeur services are also available.
For something a little more unique, helicopter and private flights are available.
Direct flights from Melbourne, Victoria or Sydney, New South Wales to the Busselton-Margaret River Airport are available with Jetstar. Travel time between Busselton-Margaret River Airport and Smiths Beach Resort is approximately 40 minutes.
