Discover the rich heritage of native Western Australians at Museum of Geraldton, which overlooks the Indian Ocean. Enjoy guided tours of the indigenous Yamaji people’s history and culture, and explore Western Australia’s natural landscapes and varied marine environments. The museum features educational exhibits about European explorations and settlements, which helped develop the region’s agriculture, fishing, mining, and science industries. Be sure to stop by the museum’s popular shipwreck gallery, at the center of which is a reconstructed portico from the wreck of the infamous Batavia, a Dutch vessel sunk by the nearby Abrolhos Islands in the 17th century.
