Looking for the best regional pubs with a view on a lap around coastal Australia? From beach views to bush views I hope this list helps you find a stop for a beer with a view!
This is an ongoing list, I will add to as find great views near the coast of each state in Australia – I unfortunately haven’t been everywhere yet ;).
East Coast Australia – Melbourne to Cairns
Between Melbourne & Sydney
Places to eat and drink with a view near the Coast between Melbourne and Sydney
Melbourne to NSW Border
Around 4.45 east of Melbourne, the Marlo Hotel is a good place for a drink with a view and has excellent food. Conveniently located as a stop on an East Coast Roadtrip.
South Coast NSW
Places to eat and drink with a view along the South Coast of NSW
Sea Horse Inn Hotel & Villas (Eden)
An accidental find while looking for beaches the bar at this hotel looks out over Nullica Bay.
Stay onsite in the Heritage Hotel or its nearby Villas (with dog friendly options) or camp at Boydtown Beach Holiday Park or Discovery Parks & you can walk home.
The Narooma Hotel boasts they have a Million Dollar View and that’s a fair claim given their location perched with views over the inlet and coastline!
It has casual pub food and a relaxed atmosphere.
Southern Coast of Australia – Melbourne to Perth
Between Melbourne & Adelaide
The Wye River Hotel
One of the Great Ocean Roads’ best beers with a view, the Wye River Hotel looks over the beach from the deck or floor to ceiling windows (perfect for a winter road trip) and is conveniently located next to a caravan park.
West Coast of Australia – Perth to Northern WA
Matsos Broome Brewery
One of more famous places for a drink with a view, Matsos has filtered views of the water from the deck.
