Original Railway Station - Geraldton
Project Status: Completed December 2014
Royalties for Regions supported the City of Greater Geraldton to restore the Original Railway Station building with a $1 million investment through the Mid West Investment Plan.
Originally Western Australia's first government railway station built in 1878, the now preserved heritage listed building will be used as a cultural and recreation facility and house the Geraldton Visitors Centre.
The $2.13 million project, officially opened by Minister Terry Redman on 3 February 2015, was also funded $1 million from the City of Greater Geraldton and $130,000 from the Federal Government's Regional Development Australia Fund.
Situated within walking distance from cruise ships and offering ample parking for visitors with caravans, the building is well placed for the Visitors Centre to showcase the town's and the region's attractions.
