Event details


27 April 2023 -30 April 2023



This vibrant festival will return to Geraldton in 2023! Join us and discover the best of Western Australian seafood, culture and adventure.

Shore Leave is traditionally the name given to time off for naval workers.

The four-day event celebrates the culture, food and adventure that make the Mid West region unique. The name Shore Leave is a nod to the rich maritime history and the connotations of holiday, leisure, and adventure synonymous with the region.

The festival will also host one of the most unique dining experiences in Western Australia, with the Abrolhos Long Table Lunch. Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience on the Abrolhos Islands.

A central focus of the festival will be the Beach Price Markets at Fisherman’s Wharf. These markets will showcase Geraldton’s seafood and regional produce. Visitors will experience a bustling seafood market selling a diverse range of fresh seafood and live cooking demonstrations with celebrity chefs, all while enjoying a beer and some tasty seafood treats.
