RvTrips' review

20 Feb 2017

On our last day in Geraldton we parked the car and caravan in a large car park along Foreshore Drive in town so we could visit this West Australian Museum. 

The museum has lots of information about several of the Dutch Ships that were wrecked off the West Australian Coast - Batavia, Gilt Dragon, Zuytdorp, and Zeewijk. It also tells the story of HMAS Sydney that was sunk off the coast during WWII - no survivors. They did not locate the wreckage until 2008. A memorial to the HMAS Sydney now stands at Mt Scott (also recommended as a must see).

Geraldton Museum also has lots of information about the local flora and fauna and history of this area. A highlights tour operates every day at about 11:30 am. The Museum’s shop sells a range of souvenirs, gifts - I purchased some lovely silk scarves with Aboriginal print for Christmas.  

This a a great spot to learn about the history of this dangerous coastline - highly recommended.
