Rainy Day

Rain is essential to our sustainability as a race. From filling our rivers to helping the plants grow, the importance of rain cannot be overemphasised in our world. However, as important as rain can be, it could be annoying sometime. Rain could make planning a day difficult and spending time outside even impossible.

Fortunately, you can still have a great time at Margaret River Wine Region, even during the rainy season. There are many activities you can do and places you can visit where the cloudy skies will not stop you and your kids from having a great time.  Here are some of the activities to consider when the time comes.

Candy Cow, Cowaramup

This place is situated right in the heart of the Cow Town of Cowaramup, and it’s a place where every sweet tooth should visit. They produce handmade Honeycrunch and Fudge as well as other candies, French nougat, and chocolate. You can even taste-test the candies before buying the one you fancy the most, and this is a spot that every child will love to visit.

Country Life Farm, Dunsborough

You can spend the whole day on this farm and have a great time. While the rain might be drizzling or pouring outside, this place has the biggest indoor play centre in the region, and there is something fun for people of all ages.
