Geraldton, 424km north of Perth, and is rightly known as the Sunshine City for its all year sunshine records.
Geraldton is the chief port and administration centre for the Mid-west region On Western Australia. Its beautiful beaches and fishing, year-round sunny climate and modern town make it a popular haven for both West Australians and tourists.
Geraldton has a wide range of outdoor activities and is an excellent base to explore the Houtman Abroholos Islands.
The town itself is very attractive; tidy streets and coastal areas with great facilities are designed to make full use of Geraldtons long summer days. Wildflowers grow in the grassy areas within the streets and parks and cover the surrounding hinterlands in profusion. Excellent day tours can be taken from Geraldton, and Geraldton is an excellent choice to add an extra night to an itinerary with any self drive package en route further north.
