Information

Geraldton is a modern, coastal city in the Mid West region of WA about 425km north of Perth. The port of Geraldon is a major west coast seaport as the city is an important service and logistics centre for regional mining, fishing, wheat, sheep and tourism industries. Geraldton is a regular port of call for luxury cruise ships with visits occurring approximately ten times per year.

The Memorial to HMAS Sydney is a must see and sobering reminder of the past.

Farmers markets occur on Saturday from 8am-12noon in Maitland Park on Cathedral Avenue and on Sunday at the Old Railway Station on the corner of Chapman Road and Forrest Street.

Geraldton has been a globally revered windsurfing location for many decades and more recently with kitesurfers. Popular spots in and near Geraldton include Back Beach, Separation Point ("Seppos"), Point Moore, Hell's Gate, St. George, Sunset Beach and Coronation Beach.

There are six caravan parks in Geraldton, located in the suburbs of Greenough Rivermouth, Tarcoola Beach, Point Moore, Waggrakine, Sunset Beach, and Drummond Cove.

4WD access is permitted on many beaches around Geraldton. Access points are usually labelled with information and cautions. Road rules apply and beaches are patrolled by local rangers. Non-compliance to road rules or entry into prohibited areas attracts significant penalties. Many beaches are impassable at times around high tide and during periods of ocean surges. At certain times of year, access may become impossible due to beach erosion.
