Geraldton is an RV friendly town so we were initially going to stop here. This would have given us a chance to look around the large town and pick up some mail.
We changed our minds but did park up and have a look around town.
We parked in one of the many large parking spots. This is basically a car park that allows 24hr parking for self-contained vehicles. You will find a dump point here and a separate tap to fill your tanks.
Even if you are not stopping for the night it’s a good place to stop for a few hours.
The parking area is by the water and harbor. Only a short stroll along the walk way for great views and BBQ’s.

Having a wander down to the information centre near by, we were given lots of information about the area and the attractions. They were really helpful and informative.
Whether you want to check out the islands, the Gaol, the Lighthouse or the heritage Trails they can give you the details.
They have some funky street art along the street and in alleyways. As well as a funky gallery.
Geraldton has three amazing play areas for kids along the foreshore. One is a water area. You will find those buckets that turn upside down and pour water on you.
Another is a dry area for climbing and ball games.
The third area has interactive games. With things to press and play.
Although we liked the town we chose to drive to Oakabella Homestead for a couple of nights instead.
At Oakabella we caught up with a couple from Dongara, our previous camp. They came to Oakabella for Devonshire Tea.
This couple had stayed the night in Geraldton and said it became packed.
Although it was a parking lot they had a great night chatting with other campers.
Sometimes it’s not all about the camp but about the experience and the people we meet 🙂
