The West Australian’s Inside Cover writer Ben O’Shea recently spent a couple of days in the region on holiday with friends, and loved his time here so much he decided to feature Your Margaret River Region not once, not twice, but three times over three days last week! This included a write-up on his whale watching expedition with Legend Charters, followed by a recap (and a Happy Birthday to you) of the first 12 months of the Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association, and finally sharing with those who hadn’t already seen it, the kangaroos ‘can’t fight the moonlight’ pic that has taken the world by storm, captured by local lad Sean Blocksidge from The Margaret River Discovery Co.

For the one or two, possibly three people left in the world who haven’t yet seen Sean Blocksidge’s now infamous kangaroo images from last week, see the full story here (including the slightly M-rated versions that weren’t shared on social media).
Also, the Margaret River region was recently named as one of Australian Geographics Top 10 Whale Watching Spots.
