We Are a Town Too ! The small little town of Witchcliffe is located 9kms south of Margaret
River, in the State's south-west agricultural region. Situated on the Bussell Highway between Margaret River and Augusta , this little town is often overlooked by tourists passing through.
The town was thought to be named after the nearby Witchcliffe Cave which was recorded by a surveyor
in 1900. The name Witchcliffe, more than likely, came from the prominent Bussell family, who had also named their
nearby property 'Wallcliffe House', which was built near rugged coastal cliffs. Click here for more history of Witchcliffe.
