Geraldton Tourist Attractions

VISIT GERALDTON AND BEAUTIFUL BEACHES ALONG THE CORAL COAST

The former landmark Mariner Hotel houses Waldorf Geraldton Serviced Apartments, located only 50 metres from beautiful Champion Bay, an area that is a favourite amongst the locals.

Enjoy stunning sunsets from one of the many beautiful beaches or take a day trip to the Abrolhos Islands, one of the top tourist attractions to visit around Geraldton, and see the brightly coloured fisherman camps, the marine life including sharks, manta rays, dolphins and migratory whales (in season), pearl farms, the historic church on Basile Island and some great shipwrecks. The 122 islands in the area are a haven for breeding-seabirds, sea lions, dolphins and migratory whales.

On land Geraldton is the perfect base for self-drive tours. Witness the wonder of the wildflowers, the Leaning Trees on Greenough Flats where the Red River Gums lie completely horizontal due to prevailing southerly winds over the years.
