Geraldton, Western Australia, Australia
Geraldton is the center of Western Australia’s Coral Coast, and a gateway to the agricultural Chapman Valley. City attractions include the Western Australia Museum and a stirring monument to the HMAS Sydney II, which was sunk with great loss of life off the coast here during WW II. See the red and white-striped Point Moore Lighthouse, and the lovingly preserved keeper’s cottage. Drive into the Moresby Ranges to visit a lavender farm, or visit the restored Oakabella homestead to see how the early settlers lived.
