Discover something different every time...
Whether you’re calling in on your way past or making a special trip, here’s everything you need to know to help you plan your visit to Greenough Museum & Gardens. We look forward to welcoming you to the museum and sharing our amazing collection and history with you. Travel safely, and we’ll see you soon!
We’re open 8.30 am to 3.00 pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (and public holiday Mondays).
We are closed on Australia Day, Good Friday, Anzac Day and Christmas Day.
We can sometimes accommodate group bookings outside these opening times. Please contact us for details.

You can buy tickets in advance or at the door. We accept cash or EFTPOS.
School groups – $3.50 per student, teachers and carers free.
Your admission fees fund this museum.
The museum is located just off the Brand Highway on Phillips Road, 19 km south of Geraldton or 43 km north of Dongara. We’re well signposted, with Main Roads’ signs indicating proximity.
There is ample, free verge parking on Phillips Road. If you’re coming with a trailer or caravan, don’t worry; there’s plenty of turning space.
Food and drink
We don’t sell food or drink at the museum but you are very welcome to bring your own and have a picnic in our wonderful gardens. We also have a bocce set available, if you fancy a game while you’re here.
We have one male and one female toilet. The City of Greater Geraldton will be installing a disability access toilet, but we don’t quite have one just yet. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.
The ground floor rooms and buildings are fully wheelchair accessible. Regrettably, there is currently limited disability accessibility to the two upstairs rooms and the cellar. (We hope this will change in the near future. Please accept our apologies.)
We love welcoming children to the museum and seeing them learn all about life in Greenough in “the olden days”. We have a dress-up box, so they can really get into the spirit, and lots of child-friendly exhibits (like our Disaster Dungeon!) At the right time of year kids are also welcome to pick vegetables from our garden or mulberries from our trees.
Making a Day of It
While you’re in the area, there are several other great places to visit, which we highly recommend. The Central Greenough Historic Settlement is a collection of 11 heritage buildings and has a café and visitor centre. There’s also the Greenough Wildlife & Bird Park nearby. Just to the north is the Bootenal Springs, an area of outstanding natural beauty and site of Aboriginal/Colonial European interaction.
If you’re travelling with your dog, you’re welcome to bring them into the museum and gardens if they’re on a leash.
Please be aware that our curator has two dogs, who live on the property.
