An Afternoon in Geraldton

I went to Geraldton on Sunday afternoon - it is about 60 kms from Dongara, so about an hour's drive.  There are huge road trains on the road, which has only a couple of bypass lanes along the route, but it is a good road, considering.  I've been to Geraldton on a couple of occasions now, and recently we've been to see movies there as there is no theatre in Dongara.  We've seen Quartet (great movie) and Silver Linings with  Aussie star Jackie Weaver.

During the week it is a bustling place, but Geraldton at the weekend is much quieter.  There was however a terrible wind and it was hot so most folk stayed indoors.



These quirky little toilets/change rooms are on the foreshore, near one of the quieter beaches.


There's a lot of development at Geraldton, including this Marina and surrounding residential complex, and the nearly WA Museum, which has a wonderful display.

On the return journey I stopped to take a few photos of Greenough - I have previously been for a walk through the old buildings - there are many in the complex at Greenough, but the area is scattered with the remnants of early settlers.

Your post reminded me of the time that I lived in Geraldton in my younger years and later lived in Leeman, 1.5 hours south of Geraldton. Leeman is especially windy and Windsurfing championships are held there!
