The premier guide to Western Australia scoop.com.au
From Geraldton to Kalbarri and all around, there is no shortage of things to do
on this stretch of coastline. With a Mediterranean-like climate and the Leeuwin
current present all year round, exploring the towns, gorges and coastlines has
never been more appealing. Geraldton has a new face to it, with the recent
foreshore makeover making it an attractive public space. Kalbarri screams adventure at
this time of year – drop your lines for some of the best fishing on the Coral Coast, or
surf your heart out and spot whales at the same time.
Warm conditions both inland and at sea make
for an appealing year-round destination
