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.

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.

My family original came from this area so it was nice to walk around and look at how they would have lived. Worth a visit.

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

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

Although the parts of the village that remain are well maintained most of them stand alone and empty a few have some furniture. I anticipated a lot more information on what it was like to live here then...this was sadly lacking. As for ambiance. ..it feels like a collection of mainly public buildings in a line, where and how did... More
