Gateway to Central Greenough (Historic Settlement)

The buildings of Central Greenough constructed between 1863 and 1913, are now conserved by the National Trust of Australia (WA). They provide a rare insight into the early settlement of agricultural lands.

Entry to the historic settlement is through the former Greenough store (Wainwrights), then on through to the modern Cafe & Visitor Centre. Stroll through the settlement at your leisure using the brochure as your guide. Take an hour or take a day the buildings are open for you to explore and enjoy.

Through the valued support of our customers and visitors the restoration and development continues.

wandering through these old buildings, each with a story to tell of historical interest. The names of the shops and the type of buisiness wasascinating. The buildings are unspoilt and left as they are. The odd llama or two hanging around. There is a splendid cafe and shop which is well worth a visit..

A fantastic place to visit. I love history and old buildings so this place suited me well. It was very affordable. The kids also enjoyed it. Make sure to check your shoes for doublegees before leaving though!

If you are in the area this is well worth a visit. If you visit all the buildings and watch the videos it will take a whole morning or afternoon and there is a good cafe on site for hot or cold refreshments serving breakfast, lunch and snacks. It gives a good insight into how communities have been created and... More

The old schoolhouse, the old gaol and policeman's residence, the Roads Board building, the churches, the hall and a couple of cottages have been faithfully restored by the National Trust to catch a glimpse of the past. Amazing to walk through and around. Worth a couple of hours pottering about here.

We enjoyed exploring this historical precinct. We found the buildings, the history and the interpretive displays interesting and informative. Well worth it for $6 (senior). The cafe was also worth a visit. The home made apple pie was delicious.

Our party-of five (four Canadians and an Aussie) trekked through the old settlement, now annexed from the main highway. There’s a range of fee concessions, including for Seniors... and two of us qualified for a minor discount. Some highlights included our realisation that the great floods of 1888 had necessitated dinghy travel in this little hamlet! Look out for the... More

Visit the Historic Settlement which is directly on the main highway just south of Geraldton. $7 will give you entry & the opportunity to wander through the old settlement buildings which are very interesting. It gives an insight into life in the area in the mid 1800’s. There is also a very popular café in which you can just sit... More

Don't miss visiting this. We stopped at the cafe first then browsed the village fior one and a half hours. Two churches, gaol etc and sadly where aboriginal prisoners were shackled. Small cottages and one had 12 children with 4 to a bed top to tail! Lamas and alpacas wandering around the grounds. Also see the old pub which is... More
