Geraldton Hotel & Accommodation

For a taste of charming coastal city life, head to Geraldton, located 424 km north of Perth and two hours from Kalbarri in the mid-west region of Western Australia.

The city is a tourist hub due to its proximity to the Abrolhos Islands, an incredible archipelago of 122 coral islands home to diverse marine life and an explosion of colourful coral. Snorkelling and scuba diving are popular around these spectacular coral gardens and give visitors the chance to come up close to native species of fish and sea creatures.

Though the coastal city boasts a number of local attractions not far from its main streets. Accommodation in Geraldton ranges from holiday park to motels and more upmarket resort hotels.

With mild winters and cool and breezy summers, Geraldton is a popular tourist destination all year round. Though it's most beautiful time to visit is between July and October when the region's wildflowers are in season and the city's surroundings becomes a kaleidoscope of colour with so many varieties of wildflower in bloom.
