Welcome to Geraldton
“Welcome to Geraldton” is a compelling piece of Midwest photography that captures the essence of this vibrant Western Australian city. This photograph, taken by master photographer Karl Monaghan at Geraldton’s small boat harbour, features the Geraldton Museum and the Batavia Lifeboat replica, bathed in the warm hues of a sunset.
The Geraldton Museum, as captured in the photograph, is a significant cultural institution in the Midwest region of Western Australia. It explores the region’s biodiversity, mining and agricultural history, the stories of the indigenous Yamaji people, and the Dutch shipwrecks, including the Batavia. The 17th-century Dutch vessel, Batavia, sank in the nearby Abrolhos Islands, and the museum features the portico recovered from this wreck, reconstructed to form the centre of the Museum’s shipwreck gallery.
This photograph also features a replica of Batavia’s longboat, a significant element in the history of the shipwreck. The longboat played a crucial role at the time of the wreck and the subsequent events. Its depiction in the photograph adds a touch of history to the scenic beauty of Geraldton.
