Most Dads love a good beer, so when you couple this with a great family friendly atmosphere at one of Perth's (and WA surrounds) top breweries it makes for a memorable family outing everyone will enjoy. These family friendly breweries are located in Perth or within a couple of hours drive from Perth and are frequented by families because of the family friendly service and facilities they provide.
These breweries are perfect for celebrating a special occassion with Dad, like his birthday or Father's Day or for when you are just looking for a quality family day out. While most breweries allocate a certain percentage of seating for walk ins, on a potentially busy day like Father's Day, its recommended you ring ahead to check or make reservations to avoid disappointment.
The Beer Garden at Homestead Brewery is a popular place to enjoy something to eat with a refreshing ale. You can choose from a relaxed style picnic menu and picnic with the river on one side, the kids playground on the other and plenty of rolling green grass to run around and kick a ball.
The Beer Garden and Deli is open weekends 11-5pm. You can also enjoy Brewery dining indoors or out on the deck overlooking the vines everyday of the week for lunch and for breakfast (until 10.30am) on the weekends too. Bookings are recommended for Brewery dining, but aren't essential. Find out more at www.mandoonestate.com.au
You can't beat dining out the back of The Great Hall alongside the big sand pit over looking the Fremantle Harbour with a cold, Little Creatures beer in hand.

Sundays the amazing Aaron Smyth Balloon Artist makes balloon masterpieces for the kids from 11-3pm also.
You can walk in anytime to enjoy dining in The Great Hall, but get there early to get pole position by the sandpit. Dad (and Mum) can also enjoy Brewhouse tours daily at 12, 1, 2 & 3pm. It's $12 per adult and kids can come along free.
Elmars in the Valley is a great place for families who love to kick a ball around together. The alfresco dining area backs onto a massive 2 acres of grassed area where you will often find families enjoying a game of soccer or football.
