The largest town between Perth and Darwin, and the capital of Australia's midwest, "Gero" as the locals call her, is surrounded by terrific beaches and boasts a recently revamped waterfront that's home to thriving arts, culture, and food scenes.

Highlights:
• Meet your guide who'll escort you to your shuttle bus for a brief ride to the Visitor Center in town.
• Upon arrival, wander down the Esplanade, learning about the imports and exports that make Geraldton one of the trade gateways of the west, as you make your way to the lookout.
• Get a great view of your ship from the lookout, as well as stunning views of Champion Bay and the Moresby Ranges to the East.
• Leave the Esplanade and walk along the Foreshore, passing some great outdoor kids' playgrounds and learning about the history of the Geraldton Visitor Centre building, as you head towards St. Francis Xavier Cathedral.
• Enjoy a tour of the Cathedral with the knowledgeable guides as they share information about the Right Reverend Monsignor John Cyril Hawes, known as Mons Hawes, a 19th-century architect and priest. He had a prolific impact on the region's architecture and also built churches in England and the Bahamas.
• Continue to the Old Geraldton Gaol Craft Centre, passing the original railway station that serviced the line from Geraldton to Perth. Enjoy a step back in time as you learn about the history of local convicts at the Old Gaol on your guided tour of the former jail that housed local criminals until the 1980s. After, enjoy browsing the former cells that are now little shops selling arts and crafts made by talented locals.
• Return to the ship along Geraldton’s Foreshore, passing the Yamaji Art "emu eggs," which were crafted by two Yamaji Art senior artists, and installed as a permanent feature along the Foreshore in partnership with the City of Greater Geraldton in 2013. Along the way you'll also see the Wiebbe Hayes Statue, which commemorates a 17th-century war hero, and the Wiebbe Hayes Fort Replica
