Backpackers in mini-vans start to arrive in Margaret River en-masse during February and March. They are all here to earn a few dollars picking grapes and surfing waves.
There are proper camping facilities located in town but many will opt for swim and sunset before retiring for the evening in the comfort of a car overflowing with human bodies.
