“Redgates appealed to our sense of adventure. It was our first visit to Australia, our fitst-ever home swap and a totally different way of living to our urban environment. We loved it, wholeheartedly. We felt we discovered an alternative way of life; out in bush country in a wonderful light-filled modern house looking down towards the sun setting on the Indian Ocean. The Margaret River region is truly beautiful; the power of the sea, stunning beaches and the inspiring beauty of the tall trees of Boranup, glittering in the evening sun. Not to mention the fine wines and the food in the local vineyards and the quality produce at the Margaret River Farmer's Market. Margaret and Kym were the kindest of hosts; we swapped cars and we got to drive a mighty UTE. Come here if you want to find something new, in the environment and in your life. Thank you both for sharing. Breandan & Miriam”
Where is it?
We live near the ocean in the Cape Leewuin - Cape Naturaliste region which is 115kms long and 40 kms thick on the South West corner of Australia.
The house is in a peninsular of forest that protrudes from the national park forest into the surrounding working farms mainly wineries, cattle and sheep.
There are world famous wineries with restaurants nearby.
The beaches are magnificent and being in the national park they are totally wild. There are spectacular views along the ocean Cape to Cape walk (7 days in total end to end).
Local town is Margaret River (10 kms) with all the services available as well as many cafes, restaurants and art studios.
The local community is apparently the happiest and most engaged in Australia and there is certainly many varied things to do. The local tourist bureau is a great way to see what is happening in the district.
