Geraldton is a coastal playground with a busy marina, great beaches and consistent summer winds that make it a mecca for windsurfers, kitesurfers and those wanting to lap up that West Australian sunshine. Two of Geraldton’s most popular festivals are Funtavia, Geraldton’s own fringe world festival of music, comedy and theatre held over three days in February; or visit during April to experience Wind on Water (WOW), an annual event with water sports and concerts on the foreshore.

Take an evening to relax, and set yourself up at at the striking HMAS Sydney II Memorial, one of the locals' favourite spots, to watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean.
