Margaret River Day 2 – Bushtucker Tour Part 3

Fermoy Estate was the last winery we went to.

This winery reminded us of a French chateau.

I don’t know what animals these are but they were running around the grounds.

We were more interested in the fragrant lavender bush right outside the window.

Of all the beautiful places we went to the last place was my favorite in terms of design and architecture. The Duckstein brewery and Saracen Estates are combined in one gorgeous, modern building. The minute we stepped foot on the pathway and walked in and saw the interiors and the view of the river it was evident the US$20 million investment in the place was well spent.

This is the area of Saracen Estates. We didn’t have enough time to try any wine there so we just stayed in the brewery section.

We didn’t have beer but we shared dessert and a cappuccino. Both were yummy!

When Silvano dropped us off at the apartment he handed us our purchases. We laughed out loud when we saw what he wrote on the bags filled with liqueur from the Grove vineyard. A perfect end to a fun day.

For dinner we went to Settlers Tavern. It’s the only place with free wifi in Margaret River that we found. The food was reasonably priced and very good.

French lamb cutlets w/ mashed potatoes A$26

Tav burger w/ giant slice of beetroot A$10

fish & chips A$16


That’s the end of day 2 in Margaret River. I recommend anyone visiting MR to take the bushtucker tour so you can drink all the wine samples you want without having to worry about driving.
