Margaret River Named Lonely Planet's Top Asia-Pacific Region

Lonely Planet has placed Margaret River ahead of Singapore, Fiji and Cambodia as its top destination in the Asia-Pacific region in 2019.

The region has experienced considerable growth in the past few years, with a 9% increase in tourism between 2012 and 2018, as well as an 11% growth in international tourism.

In announcing its 2019 list, Lonely Planet praised Margaret River's beaches, wineries and restaurants, adding that the addition of 17-hour trips from London to Perth will put the famed wine-growing region at Europe's fingertips.

"Adding to the argument are coveted food and culture-amped festivals, from Gourmet Escape to Truffle Kerfuffle and Taste Great Southern," it said.
