1. Foodie heaven in Fremantle
The first stop on The Edge is bustling, charming and historic Fremantle. You can’t walk down the famous Cappuccino Strip without grabbing a cuppa! So, find a seat outside, order a coffee and watch the world go by. If a coffee on Cappuccino Strip is a must-do then fish and chips at Fishing Boat Harbour is unmissable! There are a number of seafood restaurants on the boardwalk, so pick one you fancy and indulge in some beautifully fresh WA seafood.
2. World class wine in Margaret River
With almost 100 cellar doors to experience, many with on-site restaurants, prepare your taste buds for some amazing food and wine experiences in the beautiful town of Margaret River. From world-class degustation meals with paired wines, to low key craft beer and bao buns, this place has it all. If you want to grab some delicious local produce for the rest of your trip, make sure you visit the local farmers market or stock up at gourmet food producers on cheese, chocolate and fudge. For something truly unique, embark on an Indigenous food, cave and didgeridoo tour to forage for seasonal native bush foods, descend into Ngiligi Cave for authentic storytelling and then taste traditional foods and flavours around the campfire.
