The city is home to the Port of Geraldton, a major west coast seaport. Geraldton is an important service and logistics centre for regional mining, fishing, wheat, sheep and tourism industries.
Arrived in Geraldton on August 23, 2015 and found a caravan park easily down by the sea. Certainly cooler weather which we were not looking forward to, but you get used to it.
There is a hill in Geraldton called Mount Scott, we could see it, but be hanged if we could find it. Two days of driving around the city sightseeing and we stumbled across the hill.
On this hill is the 'Rotary Memorial, World War 11 cruiser Sydney.
The memorial recognises the loss of the light cruiser during a mutually destructive fight with the German auxiliary cruiser Kormoran off Shark Bay in November 1941, with none of the 645 aboard surviving.
(Note, this vessel is the second Australian warship to be named HMAS Sydney, and is sometimes referred to as HMAS Sydney (II))
