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.

Well worth the stop off to walk around the small community that once was. A look back at yesteryear and a great way to imagine life as it was in regional Australia. Buildings look gorgeous and are easy to navigate. Precinct is well maintained.
