The Western Australian Museum is divided between five locations across the state, and one of these museums is in the heart of Geraldton.

Inside the museum, exhibitions touch on all different topics related to WA’s Mid West region.

Old Geraldton Gaol
When you book tickets to Geraldton, set aside some time to explore the Old Geraldton Gaol. The prison first opened in 1856 when convicts were sent north from the port of Fremantle. The gaol remained active until 1984, making it the second-longest operating prison in WA, behind the one in Fremantle. While holidaying on cheap flights to Geraldton, spend some time at the gaol to learn about Geraldton’s convict history and tour the building. Throughout the Old Geraldton Gaol, you’ll also see various local crafts, which add some colour and brightness to the drab prison cells.
HMAS Sydney Memorial
In 1941, an Australian naval ship called the HMAS Sydney disappeared without a trace. 645 people were lost, and this became known as the worst naval tragedy in Australia’s history. In 2008, the remains of the ship were found about 185 kilometres (115 miles) offshore from Geraldton. The HMAS Sydney Memorial was designed as a way to commemorate the events and honour the people who lost their lives on the HMAS Sydney. Pay a visit to the memorial between your return flights to Geraldton to see its various components, including a Wall of Remembrance, Dome of Souls, and an Eternal Flame.
