Held over one weekend in November every year (16 – 18 November this year), the Margaret River Gourmet Escape is a gastronomical delight not to be missed.

Hands down, this festival is one of the most high end and expensive food and wine festivals to grace Australia’s shores, but there’s a good reason for that – it provides an unparalleled, gourmet food experience like no other festival in Australia.

In 2018, world class chefs including Rick Stein, Andrew Wong and Niki Nakayama (just to name a few) will be flown in from across the globe so festival goers can not only rub shoulders with them, but eat their mouth-watering creations and learn from the masters.

Treat yourself and spend the afternoon on Castle Rock Beach in Dunsborough at the Gourmet Beach BBQ, enjoying some sun, sand and seafood sizzling on the BBQ. Splurge and relax aboard a luxury catamaran sampling the finest canapes made by Melbourne chef Guy Grossi. Indulgence is the name of the game here at the Margaret River Gourmet Escape.
