About Us

Helena and Adrian

Hi my name is Helena and I LOVE exploring. It took me many years travelling and living in many different countries to realize that what we have here in Margaret River is magical and extraordinary. The combination of world class wineries, pristine beaches, boutique breweries, gourmet foods and stunning art is unique.

Being a local many of the wine makers, chefs, event organizers and artists are personal friends. This gives me the unique opportunity to share some of the lesser known hidden gems with you along with the iconic world renowned boutique wineries and artisans.

MARGARET RIVER UNPLUGGED TOURS was born with the vision to share these amazing experiences and special places with you via our handcrafted  WINE TOURS and CHARTERS. We also provide transfers for weddings, birthdays, concerts around the region to and from Busselton airport and Perth. To book one of our tours or charters please call me on +61 (0) 484-608-354  or please send us an email to  [email protected].
Gift vouchers available.
