Gavin and his team at the Geraldton Port Authority have been very busy of late with probably one of the largest projects to hit the region for some time. Once complete the channel and harbour deepening will allow ships to fully load with grain and cargo...without needing that extra trip to Fremantle to top up. The deepening...from 9 meteres to 11 meters will now also allo 'cruise ships' to make stopovers in the region plus accomodate the forthcoming expansion into the direct minning of iron ore over a prject set to last 5 years or more.

The huge 'crayfish industry' also relies on the magnificient natural harbour for off loading the catch, plus the lay-up and maintenace time in the off season.
