Come wearing comfortable sports/athletic gear, barefoot and BYO water bottle.

Some frequently asked questions: and exercises depending on everyone's skill level - aiming to challenge and improve your abilities on the court. Hoping to finish each training with some social games. The 5th week will be a fun King of the Court night and celebrations.

Some frequently asked questions:

  1. Do you already have to know how to play? No - all skill levels welcome - whether you haven't played before or you've played plenty and are quite good (might even have a parent or two who play/ed).

  2. Can parents play? Nope but we love to have people to retrieve stray balls and watch in support.

  3. Who runs these volleyball events and why? We are all volunteers and most of us have each got 15+ years experience in the sport - varying across indoor, beach and super league. Funds made through these kind of events go directly back into the Aquarena to maintain the specific volleyball facilities (to our standards hehe), purchasing new equipment and the overall goal is to make sure the sport that we love grows stronger in Geraldton!

Volleyball is the second most popular sport in the world - join and come find out why :)

Blue Shaddy set to rock out the Geraldton Hotel again

Blue Shaddy.jpg

In what seems the ever-living WA band that’s been playing hard professionally for over twenty years Australia wide are back to play their second show at The Geraldton Hotel. 

Blue Shaddy never seem to fade and just seem to mature more and more each time you catch one of their live shows.

There’s something very magical in their makeup, whether it’s the sibling connection of Jim and Belly, or just the pure musicianship and

the love of playing to audiences anywhere from their old home locale of Kellerberrin to the furtherest reaches of Australia and beyond.

There is even a mini Blue Shaddy in the works with their now teenage children itching to get into the action.

Come see what the fuss is all about and why Blue Shaddy appeal to just about anyone and all generations Saturday 11th May.

Presale tickets are just $20 available from Eventbrite or $25 at the door.

The Secret Life of Mistletoe

EG 1.png

In this talk, Professor Watson, an international authority on the ecology of parasitic plants with a particular fondness for mistletoes, provides an overview of recent research on these plants.

As well as dispelling misconceptions (they’re neither toxic nor introduced, and if they necessarily killed trees, they would have died out millions of years ago) and emphasizing interactions with wildlife, he summarizes recent research evaluating their effect on overall biodiversity and ecosystem health.
