The Waterpark

Situated in the heart of the Geraldton Foreshore is the Waterpark. With an assortment of spouts and other water features, this is the ultimate energy burner for the kids. Surrounded by grass and shade there is plenty of space for everyone to chill out before racing back in to enjoy the water fountains.

Geraldton Foreshore Waterpark


Directly adjacent to the Waterpark is the first of three modern playgrounds that adorn the Geraldton Foreshore. Surrounded by a toddler-proof fence with a space for older children, this playground is shaded and conveniently opposite a café for those parents who require a restorative beverage.

Walk 150metres to the south and you will come to the Youth Precinct. This space is a ‘big kids’ playground designed specifically with older children in mind featuring a skywalk, merry-go-round, climbing cube, basketball court and foosball. There is also a multi-purpose ‘rage cage’ perfect for soccer, netball, basketball, cricket, rebound tennis and much more.

The Esplanade

Located at the southern end of the Geraldton Foreshore, the Esplanade is a must-see for all visitors.  Offering sprawling views of the city, Port, Champion Bay and Moresby Ranges from a 360 degree viewing platform – this is a great way to take in Geraldton!

With views aplenty, one of the most unique things you can spot from the Esplanade are the friendly Sea Lions on our iconic Seal Rock. There is interpretative signage along the way that will tell you the story of our friendly local Sea Lions as well as the story of the Port and Champion Bay.
