Welcome to Greenough Museum & Gardens

Must-see history at Greenough Museum & Gardens

Greenough Museum and Gardens

Historic homestead

Dating back to 1862 and built by convicts, the museum is the ideal place to explore Greenough’s fascinating history — from Aboriginal times to today. There’s plenty to delight kids and adults alike.


Greenough Museum Gardens

Stunning gardens

Lush and green all year, our historic garden is not just beautiful to look at, it’s productive, too. 

Wander around and enjoy the peace and tranquillity — or pick a few vegetables or mulberries!

Incredible collections

From the fates of convicts to the fortunes of entrepreneurs, the museum’s collection has a treasure trove of stories from Greenough’s pioneering past for you to discover. 


We acknowledge the traditional owners of  what we now know as the district of Greenough; their continuing connection to land, sea and community and pay our respects to elders and their cultures, past, present and emerging.

A recent donation to this museum is this Australian made Wertheim pianola.

It was bought second-hand in Geraldton in 1946, and has remained in the same family since then (and for many years was housed at Greenough).

The pianola comes with 60 rolls of music (in varying condition), and we thank the Pettet family for their generous donation.

We are now raising money to have the pianola restored to working condition.
