Top 15 things to do in Geraldton

1. HMAS Sydney II Memorial

Discover a fascinating aspect of Australia's role in World War II at the HMAS Sydney II Memorial. This memorial commemorates the hundreds of sailors who perished off the coast of Western Australia in a battle against a Nazi raider in November 1941. View the silver dome of 645 seagulls representing each of the deceased sailors and the photographs of the HMAS Sydney II ship on the wall of remembrance. A bronze statue depicts a woman expectantly looking toward the sea for the return of the sailors, and a stone slab represents the bow of the HMAS Sydney II. Finally, walk around the Closing of the Circle pool, with 644 seagulls around its perimeter and a 2 m (6.5 ft) tall seagull looming above the water. The giant seagull's wing points to the longitude and latitude coordinate where the HMAS Sydney II sank.

6. Hutt Lagoon, Kalbarri

Shifting color between red, bubblegum pink and purple, Hutt Lagoon is an eye-catching sight that has to be seen to be believed. This salty body of water owes its pink hues to the algae, a great source of beta-carotene. The lookout on the Gregory Road provides best views of the lake, and the bright morning sun casting its rays at an angle enhances its color.

Around every corner, there are parrots in all colors of the rainbow, such as the eclectus parrot and the colorful and mischievous blue and gold South American macaws.
