We only stopped in Geraldton because it was too far to drive from Exmouth to Perth in a day.
The city’s publicity invited us to ‘take a fresh look’.
We laughed at the subtext. The last time I stayed overnight in Geraldton was in 1994, with the Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant, also known as Loss-o Memory.
But fresh look we made, and we were pleasantly surprised. They’ve removed the railway line along the water and replaced it with accessible beach and promenades.
And two Rubik’s Cube toilets.
