Where is Geraldton?

Geraldton is a small city about 202NM north of Perth on the coast of Western Australia.  It is the departure point for visiting the protected Houtman Abrolhos Islands, an archipelago of 122 low-lying
and windswept ironstone islands and rocks, surrounded by coral reef.

Entrance Notes and Cautions for Geraldton:

The approach to Geraldton has a large area of reef around Point Moore which should be given about 1NM clearance. The main leading marks are sometimes difficult to pick up during the day but are lit by night. It is recommended to stay in the shipping channel to avoid cray pots, though pots have been reported in the channel.

There is reef south of the leading line and shallow water (7 m) to the north of it. The shallow areas
break in moderate swells. To enter the marina, continue down the main shipping channel to position 28°45.8’ S, 114°36.1’ E. (port hand Channel Marker #18), make a 90° turn to port, then steer 100° to the marina entrance at position 28° 45.9’ S and 114° 36.6’ E. The entrance has no leading marking other than red and green lights.

Cruiser Highlights for Geraldton:

Cruisers recommend Geraldton as a great place to haulout and undertake repairs and maintenance.  It is the key port and administration centre for the mid-west region of Western Australia and offers a wide range of facilities and services.
