World renowned for its surf breaks, the Margaret River region makes a fitting home for the State's first and only official collection of surfing memorabilia.
See surfboards from the 50s, 60s and 70s alongside historical surf photographs and other memorabilia at WA’s first official surfing museum, which is now open in the South West.
A collaboration with Surfing WA, the new WA Surf Gallery is at Aravina Estate, a short drive from the world-famous breaks at Yallingup, Margaret River and Gracetown.
Among the more than 160 items on display are pictures by renowned photographers including Ric Chan and Greg Woodward, along with trophies, clothing and more.
The gallery is open daily from 10am-5pm and entry is free.
