The bustling port town of Geraldton on the West Australian coast is a four hour drive or one hour flight from the southern capital city of Perth. Important as a logistical and service centre for regional mining, farming and tourism Geraldton is also a station for the Australian Army 2nd Division, 13th Brigade Reserve Response Force.
Some of Geraldton’s most famous history lies in water not on land with the sorely lamented wrecks of HMAS Sydney and the German Kormoran, sunk in 1941 with the loss of over 700 lives, only found in 2008. Older and closer is the infamous shipwreck and mutiny of the Batavia in 1629 on the Houtman Abrolhos Islands only 70kms off the coast. These islands are a weave of reefs and coral gardens spread over 100km of ocean that form the most southern coral reef in the world. Sea lions, dolphins, stingrays, manta rays and delightful dugongs swim amongst the reefs which are perfect for diving and accessibly by boat or sea plane.
The town was founded following the discovery of lead ore in 1848 and named after Charles Fitzgerald, the Governor of Western Australia, who was speared by members of the Yamatji / Wajarri people upon his arrival in the region in 1849. The Yamatji people are renowned for their distinctive art that uses earth based pigments to paint cultural landscapes using many thousands of dots. Seen from the air, the nearby Mullewa region is a mass of dotted colour as thousands of species of native wildflowers including the famous wreath flower, come into bloom between winter and spring. Even in the heart of Geraldton city over 300 species of wildflowers blossom in the Chapman River Regional Park. Larger but equally wondrous are the iconic Leaning Trees of the windswept Greenough Flats just south of Geraldton. For those travelling on the Monsignor Hawes Trail both Mullewa and Geraldton are special stops, particularly the famed religious architect’s finest creation, the St Francis Xavier Cathedral on Maitland St, Geraldton.
