About Geraldton

Lost treasures, bendy trees and an historical first for Australia. It's all found in this part of Western Australia.

The first recorded site of a European visitor to the continent is within the vicinity. Too far for a day trip, but worth knowing about, it was 400 years ago that explorer Dirk Hartog nailed his inscribed pewter plate to a pole on an island a few hundred kilometres north of Geraldton.

Closer and more recent events include the mystery surrounding the wreck of a Dutch ship carrying wealth for the Spice Islands in the 18th century, as well as the sinking of HMAS Sydney II with immense loss of life in 1941.

Today's Geraldton is a thriving coastal city with a population of about 36,000 and the commercial centre for the local farming community. Its port welcomes cruise ships as well as fishing trawlers bringing in some of the world's best seafood for processing and packing.

With its rich indigenous and maritime history, Geraldton is an ideal hub for visitors. Here you can relax on creamy sand and enjoy a range of water sports, visit the treasure islands of the Abrolhos, be astounded by carpets of wildflowers in springtime, or trees that seem to grow sideways in Greenough.

Why go to Geraldton?

Pros:

The scenic city of Geraldton has everything from historic sights and museums to lovely beaches, shops and dining

Cons:

There are a lot of sightseeing and activity options in Geraldton, so you'll need to manage your time wisely

Bottom Line:

You likely won't want for anything but more time in this small but charming city

Geraldton Cruise Port Facilities?

Batavia Coast Marina has a range of restaurants and cafes as well as the local museum and a boardwalk you can stroll along or relax and watch the watercraft at the jetty. On Sunday there is a farmer's market across the road and harbour tours on a replica Batavia longboat. The main shopping area is a short three-block walk and there you will find good shopping, dining, theatres, and ATMs, as well as Wi-Fi in various locations (see below).

Good to Know?

Have fun noticing local numberplates on cars. Every council area in Western Australia has its own prefix for cars registered in that region. In Geraldton it is GN.

Be careful collecting shells in shallow water or on the beach as they might contain live 'occupants'. The blue-ringed octopus is very dangerous. Not all beaches are patrolled or have flags so do watch out for 'rips' (strong currents) when there is a big swell.

Picking wildflowers is prohibited throughout the State. If bushwalking, be alert for snakes.

Getting Around?

By bus: TransGeraldton (+61 899 232 225) is the local public bus transport.

By car or taxi: Local taxis are available and there are car rental agencies as well.

By bike: Hire a bike to see the beaches and town. Ask the local Meet and Greet helpers at the Marina for recommendations.

By plane: Flights to the Abrolhos Islands are available from Geraldton Air Charter.

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

ATMs and currency exchanges may be found throughout the town at banks and also in shopping centres as well as many hotels. Withdrawals will be in Australian currency, usually in $50 and $20 notes. For current currency conversion figures visit www.oanda.com or www.xe.com. US dollars are not acceptable when shopping, but major credit cards are generally welcome.

Language?

English is spoken.

Where You're Docked?

Cruise ships anchor in Southern Champion Bay not far from the city centre, and passengers are tendered into Batavia Coast Marina. Cruise ship 'meet and greet' volunteers are on hand to direct and assist visitors in exploring the city's attractions and directing them to ATMs and markets.

Tried to arrange a taxi trip pre-cruise to get me to the lighthouse on the other side of Geraldton from where we docked. That fell through, so walked to the lighthouse and back, then found Midwest Adventure Tours,... Read More
