Geraldton Port has been servicing the Mid West as the major seaport of the region since 1840 when the first ship, the HMS Champion, first anchored off its coast.

In 1849, the first shipment of lead ore was exported from Champion Bay.  Today over 1.25 million tonnes of iron ore is exported out of Geraldton Port each year!
