Geraldton’s Diverse Economy Makes Seachange Easier than You Ever Dreamt

When we made our first blocks of land for sale in Geraldton Heights Estate, we had no idea how many people from Perth want the seachange lifestyle. We have been pleased to find out that a lot of people in Perth are interested in moving to Geraldton. Here are some reasons why.

Real Estate in Geraldton

Geraldton Heights Estate is a master planned community which will eventually offer 2,500 land blocks for sale. Located in the Geraldton suburb of Moresby, Geraldton Heights Estate is ten minutes from the Geraldton CBD and only five minutes from shopping. It is an elevated community that provides scenic views of Geraldton and the Indian Ocean.

Land blocks are 2,000 sqm and currently sell for $129,000. This sized block would easily sell for more than $1.2 million in most Perth suburbs.

Geraldton’s Economy

When considering seachange, one of the first questions many ask is “How will I find work?” This is not a problem in Geraldton, which has a much more diverse economy than one may think for a regional WA city.

The main sectors of employment in Geraldton are agriculture, fishing, mining and tourism, but as Geraldton grows, there are plenty of “infrastructure” jobs available as well, in the medical, educational, manufacturing, transport and retail sectors. Here is some information about just two of these sectors, agriculture and fishing.

Agriculture and Fishing

As of 2011-12, 17.8 million hectares of land in the Geraldton region were allocated to agriculture. There were approximately 1,000 different agricultural establishments. In that year, agricultural products from the region exceeded $1 billion. 56% of this was from wheat production, while another 15% was from other cropping enterprises such as canola and lupin.

The Geraldton Fishermen’s Co-operative is the world’s largest processor of rock lobster. In 2013-14, they exported 3,572 tonnes, turning over $237 million.
