Have you noticed that Australians are really very good at doing one particular thing in winter? Yes, that would be hibernating. This year there’ll be no more excuses though, as this 10-day event is set to entice Margaret River region visitors and locals alike to hit pause on Netflix, get off the couch and launch into an epic line-up of winter events involving as much quality wine, seam-splitting comfort food, fireside brews and general good times as their bodies can handle.

The aptly named 'Cabin Fever' event is set to hijack the region between July 19 and 28, as venues from Busselton to Augusta host over 30 unique, one-off events centred around home-grown talent, regional produce, award-winning wine and spirits, music, art and entertainment, all set in inspiring locations.

Managed by a team from the south west not-for-profit Creative Corner, Cabin Fever is originally the brainchild of local ideas man Mat Lewis, and is a concept that’s been brewng for many years.

A small taste of what’s to come:

Night of Noir
Five course degustation, paired with Pinot Noir, including a tarot reading from a local fortune teller (if you dare). Dinner is set by candle light in the luxurious Wine Chapel, accompanied by Marchand and Burch, Australian and French imported wines and Howard Park sparkling. Dress code: Black, formal attire.

Secret Dinner
Due to popular demand - the Secret Dinner Series will return this year. Shrouded in mystery, some event details are still unknown - but event organisers can assure a multi-course feast paired with premium beverages and held at an exclusive location. This Secret Dinner is for luxe seekers. Think truffles by the fire on a private vineyard estate, hosted by a well-known chef.

Hip Hop Yoga Brunch
Think downward dog with a cocktail and chilled hip hop beats. Add a three-course share style vegetarian brunch by Rua Teweehi and you are living your best winter life.

WHEN: Friday 19th to Sunday 28th July 2019

WHERE: Locations throughout Margaret River

COST: Event prices vary. Some free events.
