geraldton Australia in 1 day

I will be in Geraldton in July from 7am to 3 pm. What would be the most beautiful place to visit in that time frame and on a budget? Would Kalbarri Park be a good choice and if so what would be the least expensive way to do it?

Kalbarri is 150km from Geraldton and while it is doable, with over three hours on the road you won't have time to see much else. You could have a look at the Geraldton Tourist Centre website to see what appeals:

Your cruise ship is going to have day trips organised at each of these regional landings. It would be far more practical to be organising the day trips with them for the very simple reason that if anything happened - tyre blow out, hitting a creature large enough to immobilize vehicle etc etc - the ship will wait for you.

If you wander off on your own to regions 150km away in an area with little to no mobile phone coverage - you will not only be able to tell them you are lost/broken down/whatever and they are not going to sit and wait for you.

It's not like a city landing where you have more options for sightseeing alone and more transport options.

Ps - I do recommend a map - Geraldton is on the mid west coast of Aus - you have posted on the QLD forums on the other side of the country.

I just noticed that PP, suddenly wondering, Why ask about Geraldton on the Airlie Beach Forum? Guess OP stayed on the forum where she made her similar enquiry about Brisbane.

Hi,

Another vote for sticking with the cruise ship's tours. WA is a very different to many parts of Australia as its very isolated with limted facilities outside the cities & main towns.
