Prevelly Where the Margaret River Surfing Carnival is Held

Prevelly in the South West

Prevelly is a small township on the west coast of Western Australia. It is a very popular surfing destination located at the mouth of the Margaret River.
This town was originally settled by Geoff Edwards in the 1960s. Named after the Preveli Monastery on Crete where many soldiers were given protection during the second world war. There is a small white chapel on the entrance to Prevelly built to thank the people of Crete.

Prevelly Surf breaks

There are some famous surf breaks such as Bombie and Boatramps that are very big swell waves. These waves attract professional surfers from around the world who want to ride these monster waves.
A very popular Cafe called the White Elephant Cafe is on the beach at Gnarabrup. This is a great venue to watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean especially on a cold winters day.

The famous Cape to Cape walking trail passes through Prevelly. Where the trail leads from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin, a distance of about 123 Kilometers. Where you can see coastal scenery, magnificent Karri forests and pristine beaches close to caves and some famous vineyards.
