Greenough

With history galore, the charming town of Greenough has many stories to tell. Located 24 kilometers south of Geraldton, many travel to Greenough to view the Central Greenough Historic Settlement which provides a rare insight into the early settlement of the area. Teamed with a modern café and Visitor Centre – it’s a great day out. And just down the road you’ll find the Greenough Museum and Gardens. The beautifully restored two-storey house doubles as a museum showcasing the homestead that was built between 1862 and 1880.

Maybe its nature you’re wanting to experience? Many travel from all over the world to view Greenough’s iconic Leaning Trees. Buffeted by prevailing southerly winds, the leaning trees of Greenough (Eucalyptus Camaldulensis or Red River gum) have become a popular icon along the Greenough Flats.

And you can even cuddle a furry friend at the Greenough Wildlife and Brid Bar. The privately owned park has been rescuing and rehabilitating Australian wildlife for more than 30 years. Animals at the park include kangaroos, emus, crocodile, dingos and an array of birdlife.
