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.

We drove past this attraction on our way to Geraldton but didn't stop then as we were tired after a 4.5 hour drive from Perth. But I am so glad we made the effort to drive back out here (about 20 minutes or so from Geraldton) as it was such a well-run attraction. Upon walking into the Entrance building/café, we... More

This is a super place to get a feel for what life was like in times gone by. It is now run by the National Trust. As well as the original buildings there are excellent audio-visual presentations which bring the past inhabitants to lifeI. t as been thoughtfully set out and the cafe has delicious food.

I stopped here on impulse on the long road from Geraldton to Perth and I was glad I did. It is a lovely place. You can almost imagine the original pioneers going about their day. Tha alpacas are lovely. The only comment is that although the buildings look great from the outside they need maintaining inside. There was a dead... More

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.
