A celebration of surfing history throughout Western Australia, The WA Surf Gallery is the first and only official collection of surfing memorabilia in Western Australia, ideally located in one of the nation’s most iconic surfing spots.

Just minutes from the world famous breaks of Yallingup, Margaret River and Grace town, the surfing history of these areas have a large part to play in the evolution of the region to its current stronghold as one of WA’s leading destinations for food, wine and nature.

For the first time ever, a collection of rare and never before seen memorabilia is on display including historical surf photographs from renowned surf photographers such as Ric Chan and Greg Woodward.

You’ll see surfboards from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s along with images from legend WA surfers in their days before being launched onto the world stage, and be inspired by the trophies from the winners of the famous Pipeline surfing Event.

Over 160 items can be found on display and the collection will continue to evolve with additional items added over time along with retrospectives for key events such as the Surf Pro which draws international attention to the surf of the South West coastline in early 2018.

The WA Surf Gallery has been developed as a partnership between Surfing WA and Aravina Estate.  It’s open to the public every day from 10am – 5pm with free entry.  Read more about the Gallery here »
