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.

Well worth the stop off to walk around the small community that once was. A look back at yesteryear and a great way to imagine life as it was in regional Australia. Buildings look gorgeous and are easy to navigate. Precinct is well maintained.

We, like 99.99% of all the main road traffic, thundered past this place several times during a trip North before setting aside a couple of hours to explore. It was fascinating. This is a preserved rural village complete with school, jail, town hall, churches (still...More

Just up from the Visitor Centre this little hamlet has been restored to give visitors an idea of life back in the Mid 19th century. A modest fee is charged for a guided tour. The church is a beautiful one and has been the scene...More

This is in my opinion one of the best National Trust places that I've been to. $8 to get in, and we were there for a good few hours. Every building was open and there were plenty of them to wander around in. I would...More

The village was settled from 1863 to 1913, the beauty about this place is that all the buildings were originals none were brought in from elsewhere. On arrival you enter through the café, entry fee was $6p/p seniors. Pick up a map before going out...More

Great fun to explore in all the old buildings - practically had the place to ourselves. Lovely old buildings, but 'interpreted' to just the right amount to give you a sense of how hard life must have been.. Kids enjoyed interacting with the alpacas and...More

The Greenough Hamlet is a wonderful, tranquil cafe to stop off with a lovely outdoor area for children to visit and pet the resident alpacas. The historic settlement is also worth a visit. Owner Kevin Freeman is a jovial, helpful chap who always gives guests...More
