Overview
More
Central Greenough provides an example of colonial expansion in the mid nineteenth century. Located approximately 25 km south of Geraldton and 380 km north of Perth, the Greenough Flats form the flood plain of the river system close to the mouth of the Greenough River. Central Greenough developed as the local administrative centre, housing the churches, schools, stores, government and law enforcement offices necessary to service the surrounding farms.

I was recommended to stop in here by a colleague, and am very glad I did - I nearly didn't stop because the website said it wasn't open until 10am on Public holidays, but I found it open at 9am. Staff were absolutely wonderful. It's...More

This attraction is run by the National Trust. The whole settlement is the museum and there are a number of buildings to see. There is clearly a need for renovation on the buildings as there was evidence of bird droppings inside some of the buildings....More
