A difficult to get to memorial but worth the perseverance to visit and take in the information. I really liked the ceiling of the circling gulls on the memorial.

Beautiful views of Geraldton. And very sombre memorial that details the event and the people lost to the tragedy. Definitely a highlight

We stopped there during a recent excursion and it is an extremely well built memorial for the sailors. I recommend stopping there if in the area, reading all the names and the woman watching over them is very powerful and sits with you.

When we arrived at this Memorial, I was expecting to see a plaque with maybe the crews names on it. Instead the whole area captivated me. The photos, crews names, the story of it sinking to when it was discovered, the story behind the circular...More

Maybe your cruise line will provide bus transport to the memorial. Otherwise a taxi would be the way to get there. There were guides on the day we went.
