Geraldton is an affluent, coastal port town in the mid-west region of Western Australia.
Being a central point between the resource rich Pilbara, the growing Kimberley region and the States capital city of Perth, provides Geraldton with a host of different economic opportunities – all of which the region intends to capitalise on.
Traditionally an agricultural region, the Mid West is now attracting unprecedented investment interest from a range of other industry sectors. It supports a diverse range of industries based around mining, agriculture, fishing and tourism. The mining industry has quickly become the main economic driver of the region with strong international demand, and diverse in nature these industries will provide both short and long term employment opportunities in the region.
Geraldton is in the midst of a massive economic expansion and has significant capacity for further growth. Land availability is good, housing prices are affordable and existing infrastructure is well-established. Cutting edge science and technology will complement mining activity in the region and bring a variety of economic, training and education opportunities for its residents.
The vision is for Geraldton to be a city that is built around a rich fabric of diversity, attractive to people from all walks of life. It will become a vibrant economic, cultural and social hub in its own right but will also still be the idyllic seaside city that people recognise as Geraldton.
Geraldton is recognized world-wide as a popular surfing and windsurfing destination. The tourism industry continues to grow at rapid pace with people flocking in from all over the world to catch a glimpse of the scenic beaches such as St George’s beach that surround Geraldton. It also serves as a fantastic base for those wanting to dive the famous reefs and ship wrecks off the coast, along with the fantastic opportunity to arrange charter flights to the Abrolhos Islands, Murchison River Gorges and Monkey Mia. The town foreshore has recently been redeveloped to host a modern playground complete with water activities, Basketball court and shaded play areas for different age groups.
With a population of over 35,000, the City of Greater Geraldton is the administrative hub for the Mid West region of Western Australia.
One of Australia’s best kept secrets, Gerladton will undoubtedly, continue to grow and provide plenty of opportunities to residents.
