Greenough Museum and Gardens
Located in a beautifully restored two storey house alongside Maley's Mill 19km south of Geraldton just off the Brand Highway the Greenough Museum offers an insight into a bygone era. The homestead was built between 1862 and 1880 for John Maley, miller, storekeeper, hotel proprietor, entrepreneur and father of 14 children. Maley was known locally as the King of the Flats. His wife, Elizabeth was the daughter of the first German migrants to Western Australia.
For 45 years, this was a traditionally static local history museum. Now the place is being transformed to become a true community Eco museum. The museum currently examines the social life of the Front Greenough Flats from Aboriginal time until today. View the historic trees and wander the community vegetable garden, you will be pleasantly surprised. Greenough Museum fact sheets are available in English, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Chinese and Korean.
The Museum welcome self-drive travellers and small and large group tours who are free to enjoy the garden seating for self-provided meals. Guided group tours are available on request.

The Leaning Trees
Buffeted by prevailing southerly winds, the leaning trees of Greenough (Eucalyptus Camaldulensis or Red River gum) have become a popular icon for travellers. The River Gum is found throughout southern Australia growing along watercourses and on flood plains. It is only on the windswept Greenough Flats that the tree develops its distinctive leaning shape.
You can view and photograph the unusually structured trees from the Brand Highway on the Greenough Flats. A purpose built parking area located 21km south of Geraldton is provided for the travellers to take photographs.
