FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How far do we walk?
Our relaxed walk is town-based over less than two kilometres and stops are frequent. A basic level of walking fitness is all you need. One of our very first tour guests was a lady in her mid-eighties who took a walking stick. Although the day was hot she described the tour as “a delightful, easy stroll” and “would recommend the tour to my fairly capable, crumbly friends”. A most helpful review!
Where to we go?
We like to surprise you… but we will visit the river precinct and at least 6 of our favourite in-town venues with exclusive food and beverage experiences at each stop. Toilets and drinking water are available all along the route.
Should I eat breakfast before arriving?
Most of our guests say “I wish I’d skipped breakfast!!”. We have a substantial amount of food on the tour which, for most, substitutes for breakfast and lunch.
What else can we expect?
Ours is a tour for people who don’t do tours. Expect a warm welcome from the faces of Margaret River’s gourmet landscape and to experience Margaret River as a local. You can only really know Margaret River and its contemporary food and wine scene when you know what came before. We share the town’s most fascinating stories in an entertaining and informative way as we walk and taste.
What is the terrain like?
Town walking is mostly on sealed footpaths but may take in some unsealed paths near the river. We will also keep you updated on any impacts from Margaret River’s exciting Main Street redevelopment, due to start in 2019. While the works may provide some challenges, we think the rewards outweigh them!
What should I wear on the walk?
Dress for the weather and for your walking comfort. Summer or winter, Margaret River can experience four seasons in a day. We walk rain or shine, except in extreme conditions. We provide umbrellas and ponchos in wet weather. Hats and supportive footwear are essential and layered clothing recommended.
Is the tour suitable for children?
Our tour is best suited to adults (and older children who can engage for four hours while allowing others to enjoy themselves too). There are some experiences which focus on wine and are not suitable for children. We ask that parents make a considered decision on whether to book for children. We can also refer you to babysitting options, subject to availability.
Is there pram and wheelchair access?
We strive to make the route work for everyone, although space in some of our venues can be tight at busy times. As mentioned, we will also keep you updated on any impacts from Margaret River’s exciting Main Street redevelopment, due to start in 2019. While the works may provide some challenges, we think the rewards outweigh them!
Can you cater for dietary needs or preferences?
Please let us know of any special dietary needs at the time of booking and we’ll do everything we can to cater wherever possible, providing our venues have enough notice. As our tour strives to offer a wide variety of local produce, meat and/or seafood samples may be served.
