Margaret River


Travelling to Australia for the first time, wondering if the nights are slightly chilly in MR right now? Thought it was summer and MR generally has a very Mediterranean climate? Coming from Singapore, 15 degrees is chilly :-)

We arrive in MR this Friday, the 31st and am wondering what to pack.

Any help appreciated! Thanks

When going 'down South' in summer I always pack some shorts, t shirts, light weight shirts for day time plus a light weight zip fleece jacket and pants for evening as sometimes gets a bit chilly with a cool breeze. No need for full on winter gear though. Plus of course a hat, bathers and sunglasses. Enjoy your holiday!

I just got back from MR today - I live in WA yet I couldn't believe how variable the weather was over the weekend - it went from stinking hot and fly-ridden on Friday, to overcast, sticky and fly-ridden on Saturday to me wishing I had a sweater yesterday morning. A light warm layer could well come in handy.

Hi there, it is often chilly in Margaret River as soon as the sun goes down! We have lovely warm days (but usually not too hot) in summer, but it does get cool in the evening (unless we have a heat wave - which we have just had). I would certainly pack a jumper and some long pants/jeans for the evening - especially if you were going to head out to an outdoor movie or similar. It was humid this weekend - but that is not usual for Margaret River.
