Discover the region?s maritime and military history on a narrated ride through the coastal town of Geraldton, pausing for photos at the enormous, colorful St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, stopping to pay your respects at the HMAS II Sydney Memorial and watching history and ancient culture come alive at the Western Australian Museum. Enjoy a commented drive including the city?s highlights, stopping to get your camera for the amazing St Francis Xavier Cathedral. Known as a ?Poem in Stone,? admire the intricate architecture, featuring Romanesque columns, enormous dome and imposing twin towers with arched openings. After, make your way to the HMAS II Sydney Memorial. This moving, beautifully designed memorial was built to honor the sailors who were lost off the Western Australian coast. All 645 aboard perished in November 1941 after fighting with the German vessel HSK Komoran. The memorial is a silver dome of 645 seagulls, one for each Australian sailor lost that fateful day. The wall of remembrance features photos of the ship and names of the ship?s crew. To the north, a bronze statue depicts a woman desperately looking out to sea, waiting in vain for Sydney to return. And nearby towers the stele, the same size as the ship?s bow. Next is the Western Australian Museum, a fascinating place to learn about the region?s identity and culture. Exhibits include rare fossils, ancient and present-day geology, and the heritage of the indigenous Yamaji people. Plus view artifacts from four local shipwrecks: Gilt Dragon, Zuytdorp, Zeewijk and the infamous Batavia, a ship connected to a captivating story of mutiny, murder, rescue and retribution. Also learn about the discovery of HAMS II Sydney, making your visit to its memorial all the more poignant.
