Located on Australia's Coral Coast, Geraldton has a pleasant Mediterranean climate and is a major regional hub that services several smaller towns within a 300-500km radius. The primary industries of farming, fishing and mining support the local community and wider region. From October to February, there are consistent 20 knot winds that attract windsurfers and kitesurfers from around the state and internationally. May to September is the time to go surfing and visit the beautiful and mysterious Abrolhos Islands.

Geraldton RCSWA is one of the four original school sites established in WA in 2002. Located next to the Geraldton Health Campus, the RCSWA office is co-located within the Western Australian Centre for Rural Health in a large, modern facility. The office has dedicated teaching and simulation spaces, a student common room, library, numerous study areas, and a café around the corner.

  • Accommodation

    Geraldton RCSWA students live in three large modern houses with plenty of private study spaces. The houses are close to each other as well as the RCSWA office and local health services.

  • Transport

    Cars are recommended in Geraldton but many people prefer riding bicycles and e-scooters down town. There is a bus service to the suburbs and there are coaches and flights to Perth daily. 

  • Health Services

    Geraldton has a private and public hospital with operating theatres in both, and a palliative care ward at St John of God Hospital. There are five larger general practices located in town comprising an Aboriginal Health Centre, Headspace and five solo practitioners. In the community there are many services which provide in-home care and palliative home visits to patients. 

  • Extra Activities

    The community of Geraldton is down-to-earth, multicultural and inclusive. There are large surfing, swimming, boating, fishing, cycling, art and music groups who host regular events throughout the year.
