Why it’s a breath of fresh air: A road trip is a fantastic way to enjoy the rolling vineyards, bushland, rivers and lakes of Western Australia. Wineries are a big attraction in this state – Swan Valley is just 20 minutes from Perth, but if you prefer to get out of the city proper, keep driving south for about three hours until you get to the famous Margaret River wine region. Not too far away from here is the Great Southern wine region, known for its cool climate and tall-tree forests.
