Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones)

Geraldton from the air is spectacular and as a result, drones are becoming a popular way of capturing the landscape.

The City of Greater Geraldton has no role in the regulation or control of use of drones, and no role in providing permission for use of Drones. Responsibility for compliance with Federal regulations and public safety requirements lies exclusively with operators.

The peak body for drone operation in Australia is the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Appropriate licences and permits for flying drones must be obtained through CASA.
