Geraldton Heritage Trails

The Geraldton Heritage Trails will give you an insight into the changes to the region over time, and all loop back to their starting point. The Geraldton Heritage Trails brochure is available at the Visitor Centre

Chapman River Regional Park

In the heart of the City of Greater Geraldton, lies a place of significant value. Along the length of the Chapman River, detailed beauty of native flowering plants and birds is framed by sweeping vistas from the Moresby Range out across the Indian Ocean.

Greenough River Nature Walk Trail

This scenic river meanders 250km through the countryside to meet the ocean at Cape Burney. Cape Burney is located 10km south of Geraldton, on the ocean and that is where the Greenough River meets the Indian Ocean. The river is a haven for an amazing range of birds, from the elegant egrets and herons to the majestic osprey and ubiquitous pelican.
