🍻What Are The Best Breweries Margaret River?
1. Beerfarm Margaret River
⭐RATING: 4.6/5 – with over 650 positive reviews! | 🌏DISTANCE FROM MARGARET RIVER: 23km |📍LOCATION: 177 Gale Road, Metricup WA | Google Maps
The Beerfarm, it’s all in the name! Quite literally, beer is brewed onsite and served up in a converted barn on an old dairy farm, providing the ultimate setting of rolling pastures to sit back and enjoy a simple fuss-free lager, a complex IPA, or a refreshing cider.
When it comes to food, the team is all about supporting locals, which makes them famous for their Margaret River brewery lunch, and as well as utilizing their own farm produce, they support their neighbouring farms (checkout the nearby Margaret River Farmstays!) and local growers, making their menu not only delicious and tasty but fresh and sustainable. But mostly did we say tasty?!
The Beer Farm Margaret River has a philosophy of All Are Welcome – bring the kids who will love the gigantic slip and slide during summer (what a fun thing to do with kids in Margaret River, especially on a hot day!), as well as the dogs, making it a great family-friendly Margaret River brewery.
⭐Locals Tip: This place is great for kids of all ages, but probably better for older kids, as the playground is a way away from the seating, so you can get stuck down there if you need to supervise smaller kids. There are also heaps of lawn here too for the kids to run around on!
⭐⭐Bonus Locals Tip: Best to double-check the menu, but the kid’s menu includes a “picky plate” (well, that’s what we call it in our house!) with fruit, veggie sticks, cheese and popcorn rather than the usual nuggets, which is a winner in my books!!

💦Can you drink the water in Australia?
Yes — In all major cities in Australia, you can drink the tap water. There are very few areas that you can’t (mostly extremely remote locations that rely on rainwater or bore water). You should also never drink river, lake or dam water anywhere in Australia. I recommend a Brita Insulated Filtered Water Bottle to stay hydrated on long hikes and backcountry camping.
🚗Should I rent a car in Australia?
Yes — Renting a car is a necessity in most of Australia! If you want to go on road trips or adventures outside of the major cities, and even if you’re staying in a major city, you’ll want to rent a car. If you are visiting Margaret River, it will be even more important that you hire a car, you’ll need it to be able to get around and see all the great attractions and wineries!
🏨What’s the best way to book my Australian accommodation?
My go-to for Australian hotels is Booking.com. Pretty much all registered accommodation use Booking.com (but not necessarily any of the other major booking platforms), and even most of the holiday homes and caravan parks use Booking.com too!
If you’re planning a trip to Australia where you will stay at multiple locations, it’s super handy to have all your accommodation listed in one place, and accommodation owners like Booking.com because it’s easy to contact the guests using the messaging platform if the guest has an international phone number.
I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit to Margaret River!
