Lifestyle

Geraldton is a booming regional city, overlooking the Indian Ocean and supporting a growing population of 37,500 people.

Situated 424 km north of Perth, Geraldton has all the major services, schools and hospitals, cultural, shopping and sporting facilities you would expect in a city, yet a more relaxed pace of life, typical of the country.

Geraldton & surroundings

The region is famous for its pristine coastline and easy access to the iconic Abrolhos Islands.

Geraldton has a long history dating back over 40,000 years with continuous settlement by the Yamatji who are the traditional custodians of the country.

It also celebrates some of the earliest European contact with the first recording European structure, being the Wiebbe Hayes fort constructed on the Abrolhos Islands following the legendary tale of the wreck of the Batavia in 1629.
