Pre-Vintage 2023 Welcome To Country Event

Thursday, 23rd February 2023 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm


With vintage 2023 commencing, the Margaret River Wine Association (MRWA) and Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association (MRBTA) invite their members and the local community to join Wadandi Pibulmum Elder, Dr. Wayne Webb for a Welcome to Country for everyone who has recently joined our region to work vintage.

The event will offer us all a moment to acknowledge that the Margaret River Wine Region is located upon the ancient lands of the Wadandi People, the traditional owners who have lived in harmony with the environment of Wadandi Boodja (Saltwater People’s Country) for over 50,000 years.

The event is free of charge and will take place at Pioneer Park Amphitheatre, Cowaramup from 5.30pm. Guests are encouraged to BYO chairs or picnic blanket.
