This museum is well worth a visit. As first timers to Geraldton we did not know a lot about the area’s history but this small museum certainly filled in the blanks for us. Great exhibits on shipwrecks in the area and the history of the town and region. The short film on HMAS Sydney was amazing. Not sure why the museum closes at 3:30pm but there were plenty of people, including us, still walking around when it was closing time.

An evening stroll, watching the walkers and the surfers. A cool beach. Café at one end, toilets at the other and plenty of foreshore amenities. A few minutes walk back into town when you are done.

Very small and VERY hot! Animals well cared for but poor layout. Shop is inadequately small . Great being able to feed the animals with feed from a bag. Difficult to find, off the beaten track.
