Family Fun

Geraldton is a popular destination for families, and it’s no wonder why with the countless things to see and do! The Geraldton Foreshore has a range of playgrounds and walkways to let the kids run wild on as well as the state of the art Youth Precinct that provides hours and hours of entertainment.

Just up the road lay the recently opened Beresford Foreshore, which sports a playground reminiscent of the Pirates of the Caribbean set. The public open space also has a range of barbecues and outdoor facilities, making it one of the best places to take the family and enjoy what Geraldton has to offer.

The City of Greater Geraldton’s School Holiday Program is always a hit during the school break and includes everything from SUP yoga, video games, beach volleyball, arts and craft and fun, educational workshops at the Museum of Geraldton.
