In this week’s Augusta Margaret River Times, the grieving father of four children killed in Margaret River’s 2018 murder-suicide will appear before a parliamentary committee next month. The COVID-19 outbreak in Victoria has once again forced the hand of Jetstar flights to the region and the region is looking forward to the start of the Cabin Fever Winter Festival.
Region at fever level for winter festival
After being resurrected after being canceled last year due to COVID-19, Cabin Fever has fueled winter festivities for 10 days.
More than 40 lifestyle and foodie events are held at 35 venues in the Margaret River area, from grand competitions to intimate small-group experiences.
