“Uncomplicated. That’s life in Margaret River, and that’s the philosophy behind Colonial Brewing Co.
Colonial Brewing Co tapped its first keg in 2004, on the wild coastline of the South West, and it is this special corner of the world that is the inspiration for their handcrafted beers and cider.
Still brewing in Margaret River today, their home in the South West is a place to share a special piece of their beer story. A place to enjoy whoever you are and wherever you’re from - whether you’re after a dry hopped limited release or your favourite refreshing Pale Ale, a family lunch or an overdue catch up with friends, live music on a sunny afternoon or a hit of Golf on the driving range.
Colonial Brewing Co Margaret River. Uncomplicated and unpretentious, just like their beers.”
RAC Margaret River Nature Park
RAC Margaret River Nature Park is enriched with history, being home to The Wharncliffe Saw Mill that was constructed in 1967.
This mill was opened by the Forests Department of Western Australia and was in operation for 14 years, producing sawn pine from local materials with the timber being primarily used in the construction of packing boxes and crates. The timber produced was transported by truck to the Wonnerup Siding in the Tuart Forest near Busselton and sent by train to Perth. In the mill’s later years, it was leased to a private sawmilling company before closure in 1982.
Today, the historic Wharncliffe Mill building offers a great undercover and function space for our guests.
Burger Baby is here to provide epic burgers, beers and wines with great people. Our Iconic burgers are paired with seasonal sides dishes and re imagined comfort food deserts with all of it available for takeaway.
