What Options Do We Have In Dunsborough?

Aravina Estate

We want to put this on our Dunsborough wine tours for many reasons. You will not be disappointed from one of the region’s most gorgeous gardens to the estate’s beauty. The wine is easy to drink and well-priced, along with many other things to look at. This is a spot-on stop for most groups, including the little ones, with an epic European playground. ($10 redeemable with beer, coffee and cocktails available.)

Blind Corner

These guys are one of only six certified organic vineyards in the region. Being the youngest of the six, they are a little more experimental, bringing new and old-world techniques together to produce some cool and funky wines. Definitely one for the more serious wine drinkers, though. ($10pp redeemable.)

Skigh Wines

Skigh has been a winemaker in Margaret River for more than fifteen years. There’s some serious value in his range and something curious for the more adventurous drinker. He sources quality fruit from some of the premier sub-regions of Margaret River and gets his wines to bottle with minimal intervention. ($10pp redeemable.)

Swings and Roundabouts

These guys have just renovated the venue, and it’s absolutely amazing. It features a great playground for the kids and a private seated tasting for the big kids. Easy drinking wine at a pretty good price point and worth looking around. Also a great spot for lunch, with its food designed to be simple and rustic, loaded with delicious flavours and perfect for sharing. ($5 redeemable, and beer is available.)

Goon Tycoons & Yallingup Cheese Co

Not just a rad name, Goon Tycoons has the goods. This small-batch producer makes gorgeous wines with varieties you may not have heard of. With a little cheese tasting afterwards, this is a fantastic stop. ($5 wine and $3 cheese redeemable.)

Palmers Restaurant & Winery

If you’ve travelled down Caves Road from Busselton to Dunsborough, you’ve undoubtedly driven past Palmers. Although it’s located on the main drag, it remains a boutique option that most people drive past without thinking to stop in.

Established in 1977, the winery has won over 50 national and international awards. Daily tastings are available whereby they offer a selection of wines from chardonnays and Semillons to merlots and shiraz. Most of which are available to purchase in cases at affordable prices.

But what sets this place aside is the Tuscan-style restaurant. It’s only a short stroll from the cellar door, separated by a picturesque lake and offers stunning views from a timber balcony and grassed area. Select from a small but diverse fine dining menu that is scrumptious, yet affordable.

Flametree Winery & Cellar Door

Flametree is located approximately 4 minutes east of Palmers, just off Caves Road. You’ll be blown away by this gorgeous beach house-style cellar door surrounded by stunning flame trees.

Enjoy an award-winning glass of wine while you check out the outstanding selection of art and open fireplace, or just relax on the deck and soak up the magnificent garden surroundings.

Flametree is also open daily and offers a range of fine options from the award-winning winemaker, Cliff Royal. Although it does not include a restaurant, you can select from platters highlighting quality local produce.

Lentedal

Although not technically located in Dunsborough, Lentedal is only 3 minutes south of Flamtree. It offers a relaxed family atmosphere where the kids can meet a range of friendly farm animals, while you enjoy a glass of wine.

The cellar door is only from Friday to Sunday, and the cafe has a selection of handmade pizzas to die for.
