The Break – Margaret River

Rosie, one of the main characters in The Break, describes the town of Margaret River as –

A mix of daggy country-town shopping and alternative gift shops.

The Margaret River region as a whole has similar contrasts, where luxury resorts, and up-market wineries and restaurants co-exist with an alternative lifestyle and surfing culture.

The locals like to keep some of the area’s best bits to themselves, claiming that they can always find a beach where they don’t have to share it with tourists. Also according to a local, the best coffee to be had in Margaret River is not in the cafes in the main street, but in those in the parallel street one block away.
