PROJECT: The Esplanade, formerly known as the Eastern Breakwater, is part of the West End Revitalisation Project undertaken by the City of Greater Geraldton. Funded by the Department of Regional Development through Royalties for Regions, Geraldton Port Authority, Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development (Regional Development Australia Fund) and the City of Greater Geraldton, the new structure is a contemporary interpretation of the Esplanade Jetty.

Creative Spaces designed a suite of nine interpretive signs for the new Esplanade, an interactive sign and we are also supplying a hand-cranked audio unit and telescopes. The new signs reflect the contemporary nature of the structure and materials chosen will be able to withstand the marine environment. Creative Spaces also undertook the image research and interpretive writing for the signs.

COMPLETED: March 2015
