Local Heritage Links
The importance of preserving our local heritage is highly valued within Geraldton and across the Mid West. From the recognition of Aboriginal stories and culture, to the challenges faced by early seafarers along the coast and their encounters with a strange new land, to the arrival and subsequent occupation of European settlers, the Mid West Region is steeped in history.
The City of Greater Geraldton supports a wide variety of heritage activities and does so in a number of ways. Teams within the Creative Communities and the Sustainable Communities Departments oversee and manage heritage projects on behalf of residents from across a broad geographical area covering some 12,625.5 square kilometres, and including the Geraldton, Greenough, Mullewa and Walkway communities.
More information can be obtained by visiting the Geraldton Regional Library, 37 Marine Terrace, Geraldton.
