My Passion

I have a saying, find the beauty of your inner world and create the outer world to match……This centre was created out of a passion to bring creatives together in one space. At the same time to help nurture creative talent, sensitive individuals and boost empty buildings in Geraldton to bring back some vibrancy. I believe our environment matters and effects how we feel on the inside. Surrounding ourselves with things that inspire us can make a difference to our wellbeing. Bringing some beauty to you in a world that can sometimes be challenging so that you can change your mind, socks and underwear!!. As a young girl my creative talent came second and instead I followed logic, until I broke down and refound my inner creative spirit.


Coming from France to Geraldton in 2017 I was surprised at how many shops were closed in the main drag, and couldn’t understand why. With research and my expertise in tourism, wellbeing & business I believe that the vibrancy of what’s on offer in the town helps people to stay and explore. I wanted to find a solution to help. Inspired by Marcus Westbury, renewing rural Australia, and exploring Geraldton I realised there was so much young talent and creators not being given space. So I decided to create it. Bring them together like an experiential internet market, so that they could communicate be found and enjoy more abundance. I hope you can experience some amazing creations and feel good as you wonder through.

How we have already helped:

Earlier this year I was fortunate to meet Ersilia through a business associate in Geraldton. I needed a vacant tenancy to be set up into a café to commence trade in March 2021 prior to the Easter Holidays. Ersilia was set the challenge and established a café with in a couple of weeks. Her creativity, positivity and drive enabled the café to be transferred to a paying tenant with a lease of 3 years.  

Amanda Lohman, Previous owner IGA sunset

I came to Ersilia to set up my Airbnb space Greenough nature Stay so that I could transition from work to doing more of my own creative pursuits. What I loved about her is she was very hands on and stayed with me whilst setting the place up. Within 3 months I transitioned from work to earning from the Airbnb and doing retreats. This allowed me the freedom to then do my woodwork, spend time with my children and develop new ideas.
