Geraldton / Australia
Geraldton experienced its heyday in 1890 as main port for the gold rush.
For nature lovers, the Kalbarri National Park is a must.
The Geraldton Museum at the Old Railway Building displays an outstanding collection of the local Aboriginal history, the European explorers and the local flora and fauna.
The Maritime Museum is in a good way "manageable". It focuses entirely on the exploration of the coast of Western Australia and the ships sunken in the 17th century, mainly belonging to Dutch East Indian companies.
