Wine and food festival Margaret River Gourmet Escape to run from November 22-24

Western Australian wine and food festival Margaret River Gourmet Escape is set to run from November 22-24.

The second annual event offers tastings from the area’s wineries (there’s close to 100), top-notch cuisine made with delicious produce, cooking classes and demonstrations with celebrity chefs, live music playing around the vineyards, and street parties. Tickets go for AU$37-150 (S$48-195) from Ticketek.

Margaret River is just over a three-hour drive south of Perth so even if you’re not in town for the event, it’s still worth a trip to visit their cellars—a monthly farmers’ market, surf beaches and exhibitions from regional artists. While in Perth, stay at the Frasers Suites Perth, a 236-room establishment with clear views of the Swan River.
