Margaret River is popular location about 277 km south of Perth, and it’s known internationally as one of the finest wine producing regions. That means there are thousands of people passing through each week, with many coming via Perth Airport, the nearest domestic and international airport to the region. If you want to get from Perth Airport to Margaret River, you’re going to need the right transport. Public transport and taxis are not always viable over such distances, due to time and price constraints. So you’re going to be left with two options: hire cars, or private transfers. Hire cars may seem simple, but they’re expensive, and they leave with the added cost of fuel. On top of that, you need to navigate an unfamiliar area – starting at the bustling Perth Airport, and ending almost three hundred kilometres away. A transfer, on the other hand, will be ready and waiting when you arrive. Simply step on, and enjoy the sights. With predictable pricing and comfortable cars, there’s plenty to recommend it.

Trip times – Margaret River to Perth Airport and back

Because it’s such a distance from Perth Airport to Margaret River, the trip can take a little while. We expect average times of 200 minutes, but there are many factors that can cause that to vary. Traffic is one example. During peak hour, when thousands of commuters flood the Perth streets, congestion can cause the travel time to increase to around 210 minutes. Of course, that’s less of an issue once you escape the hustle and bustle and continue south down the coast. When peak period is over, the trip can be a little more relaxed with travel times between Perth Airport and Margaret River of closer to 180 minutes.
