The picturesque Shire of Chapman Valley, just north of Geraldton, extends from the coast of Coronation Beach, eastward to the Greenough River, north to the Rabbit Proof Fence and south to the East Chapman River.
Explorer George Grey was entranced with the Valley’s beauty and we are sure you will be too, for where else can you view “A lofty chain of mountains, flat-topped, so irregular in their shape and outline that they seem rather the work of art than of nature”?
Grey documented these words in his journal in 1839, stating that such discoveries “repay the explorer for much toil and trouble [Halley, EM & Wilson HH 1946. Roundabout Geraldton and the Victoria District, Geraldton Guardian, Geraldton].”
