Geraldton Holidays Overview
Geraldton is located in the heart of the Batavia Coast of Western Australia and is four and a half hours drive from Perth. Known as the ‘Sun City’, Geraldton’s near perfect lifestyle offers a temperate climate with a range of activities available. Take your choice of entertainment, whether shopping, fishing or explore the hinterland regions.
Renowned world wide for the quality rock lobster from the coastal waters, it is considered that the pristine waters along the Batavia Coast near Geraldton are the reason. As a port city, Geraldton is the centre of many industries such as fishing, manufacturing, construction, agriculture and tourism. ‘Chasers of the Wind’, that is windsurfers are attracted to this region because of the perfect conditions.
Early explorations into the region brought mixed reactions. In 1839, George Grey’s report that there were good pastures stimulated initial interest. A few ventured into the area, with a report by Captain Stokes of the HMS Beagle reporting that he thought the area was dry, delayed establishment of a town for several years. After much discussion and debate, the town was finally established in 1849 and named Geraldton.
