The Esplanade

Landmarks and Buildings

The Esplanade located at the southern end of the Foreshore is a popular destination for tourists and Geraldton residents.

The Esplanade offers views of the City, Port, Champion Bay and Moresby Ranges from a 360 degree viewing platform at its far end. The area also boasts barbecue facilities and landscaped walkways.

Formerly known as the Eastern Breakwater, it was renamed the Esplanade as an historic reference to the Esplanade Jetty that was once located in the area.

New interpretive signage tells the story of the Port, of Champion Bay and of the unique Sea Lions from the 1840s through to today. There are also a few surprises that will allow for more interactive interpretation.

An audio unit which will allow onlookers to hear the interaction between Captains and Harbour Masters as ships arrive and depart from the port will be installed in the near future. The recent installation of two telescopes enables visitors to have a closer look at Port activities and shipping movements.
