Fishing for Happiness in Geraldton

If you’ve ever dreamed of moving away to a more rural setting, then you may be interested in the phenomenal real estate currently available in Geraldton. Approximately 424 km north of Perth, Geraldton is a beautiful city with a thriving economy.

A major land estate development currently underway there is Geraldton Heights Estate, a master-planned community only 10 minutes from the City centre. Geraldton Heights will soon feature all that an individual or family could need, including schools, parks, as well as a shopping precinct.

The City of Geraldton is in a stunning rural area, directly on the doorstep of the Indian Ocean. As such, it is in a very crayfishscenic location with plenty of beaches, nature areas, and other sites where you can enjoy a relaxed rural lifestyle.

One of the great experiences on offer is the local cray fishing tours, where you can live a day in the life of a cray fisherman. The tours begin at 5:30 A.M. at the Fisherman’s Wharf where a boat will take you out to the pot traps set by the fishermen. Once there, you will pull up the pots from the water and see what was caught. After sorting through the crustaceans and loading them into your boat, you will re-equip the traps with bait and cast them back into the sea.

If the fishing activities of the locals aren’t enough to fulfill your interest, then you’re still in luck! With all the bait left over from the day, you could feed some of the smaller local sharks, which you can also observe as they swim and feast. More than just an experience in cray fishing, during the tours you will also observe the miraculous sunrise over the ocean from the vessel.

All of the tours are seasonal and subject to change based on the daily weather conditions. Of course the sunrise is magical from the boat, but all of Geraldton can witness this every morning. It’s one of the many advantages of living in Geraldton.
