Attraction details
Type: Historic Sites, Sights & Landmarks
Owner description: 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.

Having to go through the shop to pay entry and stand in line while the cashier took breakfast orders at 9.30 was bad enough but then to traipse through long grass full of burs and seeds to see dimly lit mostly empty room was disappointing. should have only been charge half the price. also the artists display were not worth...

Was great to pull up here and walk this historical street ... Good to see these places being restored and showing us how it all was ... my favourite would have to of been the Hall where a video played showing some of the things that went on in the village ... We also stopped for a bite of lunch... More

Greenough is one of the places I gravitate to on a regular basis because my maternal family were some of the original settlers. I love the place, and really enjoy visiting the school that my mother and her siblings attended; the church where my grandparents were married; and the old prison where the police officer's kids were my mother's friends....

Situated just to the south of the small city of Geraldton on the WA coast is the Greenough Pioneer Village which effectively consists of a range of buildings from the bygone days of Greenough actually being more than a name on the map. The buildings are well preserved and several can be entered to view their internal aspects as well.... More

We have just spent a pleasant two hours wandering around this historic settlement then eating a most delicious lunch of all home made produce and very reasonably priced. Much nicer than we had in Geraldton a couple of days before. Very friendly proprietor and well stocked gift shop. Plenty of parking for caravans so do yourselves a favour and stop... More

We like visiting Greenough. Been there many times. It's a nice family outing. A very interesting step back in time. Simply renovated and minimally cared for. Yes could be more, still worth the visit. Lovely gift shop with cake and coffee.

Another must visit, particularly for the kids...see how the other half live so to speak. We purchased a drink but did not eat at the cafe. Cost us $30 for a family.

Weary from a long drive, I stopped for a cuppa and scones. Service was quick and efficient, staff very pleasant and the product excellent. The venue outside under the trees with the breeze off the ocean cooling the area, it was excellent. Add to that a few Llamas wandering in a paddock nearby and you have a lovely atmosphere
