Looking for the best brewery Margaret River has to offer? You’re in luck. Planning a visit to taste the Margaret River Region’s best craft beers has just been made easier thanks to a handy trail guide mapping 10 local breweries.

The Margaret River Region Craft Beer Trail includes a detailed map showing breweries from Busselton to Eagle Bay, and south to Margaret River. In the guide is information on opening days and hours, dining, contact information and more.

“We’ve proven ourselves to be a crafty lot down south,” she says.

“There are a number of award-winning craft beers produced in the Margaret River Region and we have the highest concentration of microbreweries in Western Australia.

“Just 20 years ago there was one lone brewery in the region. They’re still going strong but are now in great company,” she said.

“Each Margaret River Region brewery has its own distinct style but all share a love for hospitality and brewing some great beers in a number of styles.”

Pick up a copy of the Margaret River Region Craft Beer Trail at any of the participating breweries, or from a Visitor Centre in Busselton, Dunsborough or Margaret River. You can also download a copy from the Trails WA website ( – search for Food & Wine experiences) and app.

It’s just one in a series of 30 food and wine trails creating a simple experience for visitors to WA. 30 trails have been developed so far and made possible with assistance from Tourism WA.
