Dog friendly Wineries and Breweries in the Margaret River Region

There’s nothing better than bringing the whole family on holiday – including your fur baby. There’s plenty of great places where your dog is welcome, and we’ve listed our favourites below.

Wineries

Hay Shed Hill Wines and Rustico at Hay Shed Hill

Another great spot for a wine tasting and/or a celebratory lunch. Rustico took over the restaurant operation about two years ago, bringing their excellent Spanish cuisine to the south west (they’re also in Rockingham).

Dogs are welcome outdoors, on a leash. If you’re staying for lunch, be sure to ask for an outdoor table, and bookings are recommended.

Opening Hours 10-5pm daily. Phone 9755 6046. 511, Harmans Mill Road, Wilyabrup, Western Australia, 6285, Australia

 

Happs Winery

On the top of a hill with a sweeping view of Geographe Bay, you’ll find Happs Wine. It’s family owned and operated, and their wines are outstanding. Dogs are welcome on a leash, and Happs recently started offering build-your-own picnic hampers – you choose a selection of yummy things, grab a blanket and enjoy it on the lush lawn outside. Perfect for a family with a dog!

Breweries

Brewhouse Margaret River

Brewhouse Margaret River dog friendly brewery

One of the region’s newest breweries, it’s just north of the Margaret River town, and they love dogs! There’s loads of outdoor seating, so your fur baby can relax while you feast on an incredible lunch and sample some local craft beer.

We love the food here – we had a sticky pork belly, Asian style, last visit. Delish!

Cheeky Monkey Brewery & Cidery

Got kids? They’ll love Cheeky Monkey. There’s a big playground totally fenced in, so you don’t need to worry about the groms and the lake. Food is hearty pub grub; fish and chips, pizzas, beautiful salads. They make awesome craft

Cafes and Restaurants

Bunkers Beach House

We love the amazing view and delicious food. The café is tucked in amongst peppermint trees on the dunes of Bunker Bay, so you have glimpses of the crashing waves and sparkling turquoise bay, depending where you sit. The coffee is great too, and fido is welcome to sit with you at an outdoor table.

The beach north of the café is dog-friendly, but you’re surrounded by national park (where dogs aren’t allowed) so be careful to observe the signs.

Opening Hours 8.30am - 3pm daily. 7 days a week. Phone 9756 8284. Farm Break Lane, Naturaliste WA 6281.

The Berry Farm

About 15 minutes south east of Margies, you’ll find the gorgeous Berry Farm tucked away amongst farms and wineries. Dogs are welcome on a leash outdoors. The rustic café is surrounded by gardens, and you might spot a blue wren if you’re lucky, during spring and summer. Food is simple, honest cuisine – the beef pie was our favourite, and the blueberry pie for dessert.

Great playground for the kids.

Open daily: Cottage Cafe 10.00am - 4.00pm Lunches 11.30am - 3.00pm. Cellar Door 10.00am - 4.30pm. Phone 9757 5054. 43 Bessell Road, Rosa Glen, WA 6285, Australia.

Notable mentions: Petra Olive Oil Estate (Yallingup), Sea Garden Café, The White Elephant Beach Café, The Fat Chef Café (Busselton), Colourpatch Café (Augusta, great fish and chips)
