Family owned and operated Cowaramup Brewing Company serves up a range of traditional brews all made with the nine hop varieties grown on the property.

You'll enjoy a personal brewery tour and tasting before tucking into a delicious lunch in the beer garden and taking in the peaceful classic rural views.
And local hospitality
Settlers Tavern is 'the kind of pub every wine region should have' – so said Gourmet Traveller in 2008 and this sentiment remains as strong as ever.
Originally built as a haven for the region's emerging surf culture of the 1970’s, it's now a gastronomic hub with an award-winning wine-list with over 250 wines from all over the world including more than 50 from Margaret River.
And not forgetting the 15 beers on tap from local boutique and international brewers plus a vast range of bottled beers.
The menu is driven by local produce and world flavours: local Wagyu beef, Plantagenet Free Range Pork, Mount Barker Free Range Chicken, Nannup Cambray Cheese and Margaret River Venison are southwest specialties.
There is always a great selection of freshly caught local fish as well and even plenty of pub favourites like Veal Parma, Lamb or Vegetable Curry, Laksa and Spag Bol.
Whether you choose lunch or dinner at Settlers, you're sure to rub shoulders with local legends and a widely eclectic mix of world-class winemakers, winery crew, locals and their families and travellers from every continent.
Get a new appreciation for coffee
As part of your Margaret River culinary experience, Yahava KoffeeWorks will take you on a full coffee appreciation course covering growing and harvesting, green beans, roasting and of course, the ultimate test – the tasting.
Yahava believe there's no one overall 'best coffee' just the best coffee for your your own particular taste buds. They choose only the best quality beans available to provide a selective range of flavours and aromas so there's every chance you'll find your perfect brew.
To remember your KoffeeWorks course, you'll go home with a gift box that's full of delightful aromas and memories.
Discover diamonds, lakes, mammoths and a spectacular lighthouse
In between all the fabulous wine and food, experience some of the most unique and stunning caves in Australia and climb the country’s tallest mainland lighthouse with your complimentary entry to all four major attractions.
Be stunned by the dazzling visual display of nature at its finest in Jewel Cave where stalactites and straws stretch, suspended and hanging across the ceiling like vines and dancing cobwebs. At Lake Cave absorb the peace and tranquillity of the mirrored reflections, surrounded by towering aged karri trees and in Mammoth Cave, an enormous gothic chamber, take the journey of Indigenous inhabitants and ancient megafauna - complete with fossils.
