Geraldton is quite a large country city. To this end there are lots of motels and units for those with the budget to stay in such places. There are also quite a number of Caravan Parks however, for the more budget conscious. Described below are some places I have stayed at and know about.

At the end of this section is a list of other possibilities. I have not stayed at most of these and cannot give any commentary. They are there as a resource only.

Sunset Beach Holiday Park

This is great place for windsurfers to stay. The local sailing is good and the trip to Coronation is easy. You are right on the water, so you can see what is going on with the wind all day long. Sunset Beach can boast some good swell at times. We usually sail there till the trip to Coronation guarantees a good sail.

Historically there have been a lot of sailboarders in residence over the sailing season.

Their web page can be viewed here.

The park is north of the city, over the sand dune from Sunset beach. You can rig in the park, and carry you gear over the (small) sand dune to the beach to sail. Here is a picture of the front of the office. Everyday, in the office, a fax of the weather chart and details is available for the consideration of the sailboarding contingent.

The park has both powered and un-powered camping sites. There is also a camp kitchen (picture) and games room for the use of the patrons. The camp sites have trees and shade.

The park also has a number of park homes (picture). These units are self contained, with a kitchen and bathroom. They vary in size, but generally can accommodate 4 people, or less with gear (picture).

There are also on-site vans (in essence caravans), that are similar in concept to the park homes, however don't have their own bathroom (picture).

It used to be necessary to book ahead if you wanted to get a park home or caravan. Park homes may still require booking ahead, however caravans seem reasonably easy to get at short notice. Still it may not hurt to book ahead.

Geraldton Bed and Breakfast

The Geraldton Bed and Breakfast is superb accommodation near the center of Geraldton. The property has a three bedroom self contained house, as well as two separated self contained one bedroom bungalows on site. The house is rent-able on a per room basis, sharing kitchen and bathroom facilities.

Being near the center of the town, it is centrally located to go north to Sunset Beach, or south to sail Pt Moore. It also has a pool, which would be great on those occasional hot but windless days.

The web page has details and pictures. If you don't want to be right on the beach, but want some comfort and seclusion, this is the spot to be in Geraldton.

Pam and Brett make you feel at home with their charm and hospitality. It is a great place to stay, and is a little oasis in what can otherwise be hot living in Geraldton. You can sail hard all day, and it is great to come home to the B&B.

Here is a picture album of the B&B. I told you it was superb. This is my favourite place to stay in Geraldton.

Contact details are here.
