Australia's South West

Locally brewed beers and fresh cuisine make the pubs of Australia 's South West truly unique. For wine lovers, you'll also find an extensive list of award-winning wines to enjoy. And when you add spectacular scenery and beautiful natural surroundings, they're even more of a must-see. Here, the water feature in the beer garden is often the ocean itself.

Many, like the Rose Hotel in Bunbury, are found right in the centre of town. Built in the late 1800s, the Rose has a laid back vibe, imported beers on tap, South West wines and ocean views. The Victoria St Bar has a classic feel and is perfect for catching up with friends or as a starting point for a fun night out.

For history, you can't beat Seashells Caves House in Yallingup. The Sunday Session here is legendary - you'll find most West Aussies have downed a coldie here at some point.
Recently restored, the hotel's new Long Bar overlooks beautiful gardens which lead to the beach. Accommodation comes in the form of one or two bedroom suites with all the mod cons.
