HMAS Sydney II Memorial

The memorial is a hotspot for tourists all year ‘round but is one of my favourite places as a local too. People tend to fall into a routine, I myself and prone to the mundane jaws of daily life too, but I encourage all you Geraldtonites to take a break and check out this golden spot.

Look out over the bustling streets during the day, or take a stroll at night to see the twinkling city lights; but remember to take a jacket because the winds are stronger up here.

There’s plenty of lovely green grass and a picnic bench, so bring along the family for some food and games as well.

Take a moment to remember the 645 bravemen that sacrificed their lives in November, 1941. Think of their families that were left behind with no closure, constantly looking out to sea for those who were lost.
