  • Central Greenough

    Central Greenough provides an example of colonial expansion in the mid-nineteenth century. It was initially developed as the local administrative centre, housing the churches, schools, stores, government and law enforcement offices necessary to service the surrounding farms. During the 1860s Greenough became a thriving agricultural area but the threat of rust on the wheat crops combined with drought, flood and poor prices for agricultural products led to the area’s decline. The population of the Greenough Flats dropped dramatically in the first half of the twentieth century and many of its buildings fell into disrepair. Stop by Central Greenough and soak up the stories on your next drive through Geraldton. Start your visit at the Central Greenough Café where your general admission to the place gives you a remarkable insight into the rich heritage of the historic settlement. Opening Hours: Open: Daily 10am to 3pm (last entry at 2pm) Closed Good Friday

  • Chapman Valley Historical Society Museum

    The Chapman Valley Historical Society museum focuses on the lives of early settlers in the region. The Upper Chapman Road Board building at Nanson was advertised to be demolished, however, after much public outcry from residents, a meeting was called and from this meeting, the Chapman Valley Historical Society was formed in 1982. Several years later the group made the decision to develop a museum. A farm shed was donated and farm machinery from throughout the Chapman Valley District was collected. To increase the museum's appeal, the society developed a timeline of the local history using photos and historical information. The museum now houses family histories, photos of pioneers, wedding photos, newspaper clippings, farming implements, household items and district memorabilia.
