Back Beach is one of the most popular surfing beaches in Geraldton. For the surfing enthusiast make sure to bring your surf board and practice your skill on the medium to large waves with the locals.
The Surf Life Saving Club patrols the beaches during the summer weekends, so make sure you swim between the red and yellow flags. Whilst the beach is not recommended for children to swim due to the strong swell, there is plenty of soft and hard sand to construct a sand castle or kick a football around.
The Chris Mainwairing memorial stands on top of the dune next to the Surf Life Saving Club. Chris was born in Geraldton and went on to become an AFL player for the West Coast Eagles. The memorial was erected after his death in October 2007.
Enjoy a 20 minute walk from the town along the pristine white sandy beaches of Geraldton to Back Beach and watch the keen surfers tackle the consistent waves at the surf break. The coastal town of Geraldton is a five hour drive north west of Perth and offers an array of attractions and a variety of spectacular beaches.
