What a delight Geraldine is as one of those places that is now turning into a tourist town. Not long back a small community struggling after the rural devastation of the eighties; now we have museums, a lively shopping precinct and human dynamics that clearly indicate a proud community at work and play.
The Geraldine area started to be settled by Europeans in the 1840s and it was in 1854 that Samuel Hewlings built the first bark hut in Talbot Street.
Geraldine is in the heart of a prosperous farming area with dairy cows, sheep, cattle, deer, cropping and fruit growing in abundance. Almost 3,500 people live in the town and its surroundings areas.
