Shipwrecks and Artefacts at the Museum of Geraldton

Uncover the rich history of the Mid West and our coastline's historic shipwrecks at the Museum of Geraldton.

Just steps away from the Indian Ocean, the Museum of Geraldton showcases the best of the Mid West region and is a must-visit on your next trip into town.

From the native flora and fauna to the unique landscapes, Yamaji culture and the history of the region – including a detailed look at the shipwrecks that can be found off the WA coast – the museum offers something for all ages.

Venture into the Shipwrecks Gallery, and you’ll find interesting artefacts retrieved from four Dutch shipwrecks lying off the WA coast; Batavia, Gilt Dragon, Zuytdorp and Zeewijk.

Through a moving exhibit and 3D movie, visitors can also take a look at the wrecks of HMAS Sydney (II) and HSK Kormoran as they currently lie, 2,500 metres deep on the floor of the Indian Ocean.

A current popular exhibit at the Museum is the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year 2020, showcasing extraordinary wildlife and landscape images from across Australia and around the world.

Visitors can also join a museum highlights tour available daily at 11.30am.

Entry to the museum is free, with donations welcomed. Open 9.30am-3:00pm daily.
