What can you do in Geraldton over the weekend?
Yamaji Art Centre
There is a rich Aboriginal culture that you can learn all about while travelling in Western Australia on Geraldton holiday packages, and you can take in an aspect of this culture at the Yamaji Art Centre. It’s 100% Aboriginal owned and operated, and it showcases pieces from artists in the Yamaji Country around Geraldton. Visitors to the Art Centre can learn about Yamaji heritage and Dreamtime stories through both traditional and more contemporary styles of paintings, textiles, and ceramics. Visitors holidaying on Geraldton packages can also get a more in-depth look at Yamaji art by taking part in talks and workshops.
Take a step back in time by planning a visit to the Greenough Settlement when you book Geraldton holiday packages. It was once a thriving agricultural village, and now its heritage buildings offer some insight into what the region was like in the 1860s. There are 11 historic buildings in the settlement, and nine of them are open to visitors holidaying on Geraldton packages. There are plenty of other attractions to visit around Greenough after you’ve spent some time at the Greenough Settlement. Trek along bushwalking trails, stop by the beach, and see the town’s iconic leaning trees.
Museum of Geraldton
Plan a trip to the local museum after booking Geraldton accommodation and flight packages to learn about the history and culture of surrounding region. It’s one of the Western Australian Museum’s six branches. Exhibits at the Museum of Geraldton touch on all different aspects of local life, including Aboriginal history and culture, shipwrecks, geology, and marine animals. The museum also offers a guided tour each day at 11:30am, a good option if you’re looking to dig a little deeper into the area’s heritage while holidaying on Geraldton packages.
When is the best time to visit Geraldton?
Geraldton enjoys nice weather year-round, so there really isn't a bad time to book Geraldton accommodation and flight packages. Summer’s hot temperatures and low levels of rain make it the ideal time for spending days at the beach. Daytime temperatures average 32°C but regularly reach about 40°C. Summer is also the busiest time of year to travel with Geraldton packages, so come prepared for some crowds and reserve your hotel and accommodation in Geraldton early for the lowest price.
Autumn and spring are the two shoulder seasons. Both are excellent times to travel on Geraldton holiday packages to take advantage of warm weather without the crowds of summer. Daytime temperatures average between 25° and 30°C in autumn and a slightly cooler 22° to 27°C in the spring with little rain.
Avoid other tourists and save some money by booking Geraldton holiday packages during the winter low season. Daytime temperatures of 20°C make it a bit too chilly to lounge on the beach, but you’ll still be able to enjoy hikes, coastal walks, and other outdoor activities. There’s a bit of rain in winter, and evening temperatures cool to about 10°C, so come prepared with an umbrella and a jacket as well. Prices for hotels and accommodation in Geraldton are also at their lowest during the winter months.
What is the best way to get around Geraldton?
Geraldton has a compact city centre that you’ll have no trouble getting around on foot while holidaying on Geraldton packages. You can walk just about anywhere around the CBD in 15 to 20 minutes.
Some of the top sights to see around the region are located outside of the centre and are best reached by car. Find a great deal on rental cars by booking through Webjet along with your Geraldton accommodation and flight packages. You may also consider renting a 4WD car for your trip. This will give you access to off-the-beaten-path spots down unsealed roads of the Outback and national parks nearby.
There’s a small network of public buses available to visitors who are staying in a hotel and accommodation in Geraldton. Each of the three bus lines crosses through the CBD before branching out in different directions to the suburbs. Buses are available in the mornings and afternoons Monday through Saturday. The bus is a good option to keep in mind, but buses are spaced one to two hours apart, so hiring a car to go along with your Geraldton holiday packages will save you some time.
