Must-see history at Greenough Museum & Gardens
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.
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!
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 now 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.

Felix Devlin’s Coffee Pot
This coffee pot engraved with panels depicting the Four Seasons was made by the firm of John Harrison & Co, Sheffield, England.
Felix Devlin was a private in the 86th Regt of Foot. He married Sara Marshall c1860, and arrived in WA with family on the 'York' as an Enrolled Pensioner Guard two years later. It is likely he brought this pot with him.
Felix was granted land at the northern end of the Front Greenough Flats (near a pool which now bears his name).
The pot stayed in the family until his grand-daughter, Stella Smith passed it onto the donor for safe-keeping. (Donated by Peter Aarts 2021/038)
