Museum of Geraldton

Branch | Updated 1 week ago

Overlooking the Indian Ocean, the Museum of Geraldton celebrates the rich heritage of the land, sea and people of the Mid West region.

Discover ancient landforms, Yamaji history and culture, and the region’s unique natural landscapes and marine environment.

The archaeological riches from four Dutch shipwrecks - Batavia, Gilt Dragon, Zuytdorp, and Zeewijk, are revealed in the Shipwrecks Gallery. Visitors can join a guided highlights tour available daily at 11.30am.

Witness the wrecks of HMAS Sydney (II) and HSK Kormoran as they currently lie, 2,500 metres deep on the ocean floor, in From Great Depths, a moving exhibit and 3D film.

The Museum’s shop has a great range of souvenirs, gifts and educational items suited to all ages and interests.

For more information call (08) 9431 8393.



The Western Australian Museum locations (except the New Museum which opens on 21 November) are open and we look forward to welcoming you.
In line with the WA Government’s Phase 4 requirements, there is a limit of 1 person per 2 square metres of venue space. In most cases, this is easily achieved.
We have increased the scope of our cleaning regime, and we have available hand sanitiser for visitors.
