Sunset Functions

About Us

White Elephant Sunset Functions originated with one thing in mind, the perfect location. If you are a beach lover or just love the idea of a beach-side function our venue is your venue. Expansive views from stunning Gnarabup Beach to the renowned Surfers Point, you cannot get much closer to the most famous location in Margaret River. Early afternoon into sunset evenings, here nature is provided at its finest.

Catering for up to 200 guests cocktail style our expansive deck and entertaining area provides uninterrupted views and superb summer sunsets.

A sunset function on the foreshore? Sounds perfect!

“It’s almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.”

We held our belated staff Christmas party at the White Elephant in February and everyone agreed that we had picked the best venue, with beautiful service, great food and a wonderful setting. The view from the deck can’t be beaten especially with the backdrop of a beautiful sunset.
