Public Transport

Getting around Margaret River by bus

For information on train and bus services within the region we recommend you get in touch with your local visitor centre or the regional public bus service Western Australia’s Public Transport Authority.

As is typical in regional Western Australia, public transport is limited to main routes only and we would not recommend relying on public transport to make your way around the region for the duration of your holiday. For private touring, charters are a great option offered by many local companies.
