Prevelly and Gnarabup
Located 10km west of Margaret River town, Prevelly is situated at the mouth of the Margaret River. Home of the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro surf competition, Prevelly is internationally recognised for its spectacular surfing conditions. There are fantastic views from Surfers Point lookout and from high up on the ridge. Prevelly was named and the Greek Chapel was built, as an expression of gratitude by a WW2 Australian prisoner of war.
Fantastic accommodation options include a holiday park, camping, backpackers, beach houses and apartments. There’s plenty to do with a surf school, tours, canoe and surfboard hire that operate down by the river mouth.
Gnarabup is one of the best swimming beaches, nearby to Prevelly and is just 10 kilometres away from Margaret River town. The turquoise waters are tempered by the warm Leeuwin Current, sheltered by an outlying limestone reef and southern headland. Beachcombing is a must, particularly near the little cove at the southern end of the beach. The facilities are fantastic with a lodge, beach house and apartment resort accommodation, a beachside restaurant, bar and café, coastal path and boat ramp. Make sure you swim between the flags.
