WA breweries

Cheers! We’re spoiled for choice with so many breweries in Margaret River and regional Western Australia! Nothing is better than spending a long weekend lapping up the sunshine in a beer garden, tucking into great food and sipping on a craft beer. Most WA breweries include children’s playgrounds, meaning the kids are occupied, making the experience even better! If you love a lager or adore an ale, Western Australia is home to a number of boutique and micro-breweries serving award-winning craft beers. We’ve put together the ultimate list of kid friendly breweries in Margaret River and the rest of south west:
