Owner description: Central Greenough provides an example of colonial expansion in the mid nineteenth century. Located approximately 25 km south of Geraldton and 380 km north of Perth, the Greenough Flats form the flood plain of the river system close to the mouth of the Greenough River. Central Greenough developed as the local administrative centre, housing the churches, schools, stores, government and law enforcement offices necessary to service the surrounding farms.

“A view into the MidWest past”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

While in Geraldton for an event, we decided explore this wonderful piece of history. Plenty of parking, We really enjoyed our time here, the cafe served a great coffee, we then walked thru to the historic buildings.

“Nice family excursion”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Pretty place to visit.”

Greenough is a very pretty place. Nice views of the river, and a lovely scenic walk. There is nothing to dislike about the place.

“A sad town frozen in time”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We had a great two hours here, and found it fascinating.
The buildings are in good condition, and it is so sad that the community just went wrong for varying reasons.
It's well portrayed by descriptions in the buildings, and in a film of reminiscences.
We didn't eat in the cafe (but did have an ice cream), which seemed well stocked, and other visitors were having meals.
This is well worth visiting.
