Located along the pristine southern coastline and expanding into the farming hinterland it includes major centres Albany, Denmark and Mt Barker. It also boasts some of the most beautiful and unique natural tourism attractions in the state.

Foods like oysters and seafood, cereal crops, beef and sheep, vegetables and milk products all excel on the south coast and the wine varietals such as Shiraz, Riesling and Pinot Noir all compete strongly on the world stage.
The main sub regions are all proud of what they produce and include the locations of Frankland River, Mt Barker, Porongurup, Denmark and Albany.
