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.

Great fun to explore in all the old buildings - practically had the place to ourselves. Lovely old buildings, but 'interpreted' to just the right amount to give you a sense of how hard life must have been.. Kids enjoyed interacting with the alpacas and the piano in the town hall...

I was recommended to stop in here by a colleague, and am very glad I did - I nearly didn't stop because the website said it wasn't open until 10am on Public holidays, but I found it open at 9am. Staff were absolutely wonderful. It's a cheap day out visiting the historic settlement at $7 per adult - definitely worth... More

The Greenough Hamlet is a wonderful, tranquil cafe to stop off with a lovely outdoor area for children to visit and pet the resident alpacas. The historic settlement is also worth a visit. Owner Kevin Freeman is a jovial, helpful chap who always gives guests a warm welcome. Oh and the food is divine. You can't go past the homemade... More

wandering through these old buildings, each with a story to tell of historical interest. The names of the shops and the type of buisiness wasascinating. The buildings are unspoilt and left as they are. The odd llama or two hanging around. There is a splendid cafe and shop which is well worth a visit..

A fantastic place to visit. I love history and old buildings so this place suited me well. It was very affordable. The kids also enjoyed it. Make sure to check your shoes for doublegees before leaving though!

A short drive from Geraldton is this delightful historic village. The buildings are diverse and well maintained/restored. The typical school buildings and school plus a quaint church and old dunny. The shop also has some amazing trinkets and a good range of food and ice creams for a hot day. The alpacas were just laying around and munching to add... More

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

This attraction is run by the National Trust. The whole settlement is the museum and there are a number of buildings to see. There is clearly a need for renovation on the buildings as there was evidence of bird droppings inside some of the buildings. There is a social history video showing in the community hall which is very interesting... More
