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.

Our Australian friends took us to Greenough Pioneer Village. We were met by a charming lady at reception and once into the old village found several alpacas keeping the grass short. To go into the various villagers homes was quite a shock and when you consider the distances that they travelled to get there with a horse at best, it... More

A step back in time to see some restored and some as original buildings from pioneer days. We enjoyed the ramble through the site and were able to look through doors to the settings inside. Notes on the lives of those who lived here and history were interesting. The site is run by the National Trust and is entered through... More

Visited this place back in 1989. This visit was very disappointing. The café was ok, I got the last cappuccino before the machine ran out water, lots of grumpy people around. Didn't bother with any food the flies were unbelievably bad. The village is now made up of a series of buildings with empty rooms, very uninteresting. Entry fee was... More

A beautiful little village. We loved how everything was so natural no silly manikins being used as "people" just everything of that stage and era. The walls had all the dates and a small amount of info it really was worth the trip.

Travelling along the road and see this lovely little settlement and had to pull in. I'm glad we did as the buildings are really beautiful considering how long they've stood there. We found it very interesting and loved the old pictures of the families that hung on the wall in the main residence. God they had it hard back then... More

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
