A throwback to last year and our first holiday away since the birth of our daughter 6 months earlier.
Our accommodation was a 2 bed cabin in a caravan park on the river. The cabin averaged out to $71/night which in Margaret River is 30% cheaper then the normal nightly rate. Saving is $200 over the week stay.
The cabin is part of holiday home program offered through Mr FMT’s employer. For $150/year membership, has paid for itself in the first holiday and we still have future holidays planned.
We went out for lunch most days enjoying breweries and wineries in the south west region.
Most nights we either cooked or brought back some takeaway to our cabin because nights are difficult enough with a new baby.
Most of our entertainment was free- bushwalking, beautiful beaches, cheese and chocolate tastings. We did pay to go down some caves which we hadn’t done before and was good fun.
Accommodation $500 for 7 days
Expenses $990 including food, transportation, entertainment.
Total $1,490 $212/family/day
Our Margaret River Trip wasn’t the cheapest week away but was a well earn rest after a sleepless 6 months as new parents.
