Hello and welcome to Cervantes, Believe it or not, our township was only named in 1962 when 505 hectares were released from Nambung Reserve  

Cervantes is the name of our Islands and that came about in 1844 when Captain Sylvanus Gibson of the American whaling vessel anchored to do a spot of fishing. Before they knew it they were grounded. The Crew walked to Fremantle and the vessel was auctioned where she lays to this day, The Hull can still be seen on a clear day Depth 4 meters GPS (wgs 84) S 30 30.802' E115 o 03.004  They say he vessel was named after the novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes.
