Central Greenough is an historic town 380 km north of Perth, it consists of 11 main buildings some dating back to the mid 1800's. The original general store is the entry point and is also a museum, there is a modern extension on the back that houses the gift store and cafe, we had a feed and coffee there, very nice. There is an entry fee to see the rest of the town but it is quite minimal, I think around $8.00 each (I may be mistaken). The rest of the town is well preserved and furnished, there are two churches, a convent, police station and gaol and several other buildings. It is a pleasant stroll around town wandering through these buildings. If you are going past drop in it is well worth it.

Greenough is located approximately 25km south of Geraldton WA. Greenough developed in the mid 1800's becoming a thriving agricultural area. The historic settlement is a collection of the remaining buildings from yesteryear. Well worth a visit.

This little village managed by the National Trust is well worth visiting. Frozen in time from the mid 1800s, it has houses, village halls, churches, schools and a convent that are all open for inspection. There is a video in the community hall that gives a potted history of the place and interviews various local identities. I was struck with how modest the houses were. We have certainly become much more consumeristic and greedy somewhere along the way.

There are places with an insight into Australian past with lots more buildings and implements etc - what makes this site so good is that it was the town and so much was still in use to fairly recent. The churches are still used today!
It is a good and simple insight into the life and times of rural WA and well worth the 1-2 hours to wander around.
It is not a sight that I would drive up to see, but it is definitely a sight that I would stop and visit if I was in the area and one that I would encourage others to do the same - particular those interested in the area or Australian history.
Not a lot to see for young kids - principally buildings and the stories that go with it. Although they would probably love the alpacas.

Don't know how I missed finding out about this place when I was researching for our holiday. We saw a "turn-off" and came to the area. Unfortunately we hadn't planned for enough time to do a tour of the lovely old buildings, etc. We did visit and partake of a lovely afternoon tea and cups of coffee, however - and we also bought some beautiful souvenirs and handcrafts. Outside, when we were leaving, we loved seeing the alpacas - and watching them feed. We would love to go back some time and visit the whole site, with its interesting history.
