Greenough

From Geraldton your first stop will be Greenough a charming and historic country town famous for its leaning trees. Strong south winds have forced the Red River Gums (Eucalyptus Camaldulensis) to grow horizontally. You’ll find these River Gums throughout southern Australia along river banks and flood plains, but only in Greenough Flats do they grow horizontally. To photograph them, pull into the purpose built parking lot off the Brand Highway, 21 km south of Geraldton.

Greenough has some well-preserved Victorian limestone buildings which are protected by the National Trust of Australia and can be accessed through the Visitor Center (9 am – 4 pm). A brochure will inform your stroll from building to building.

Elsewhere in Greenough, the Greenough Museum and Gardens is a beautifully restored 2 story house which is being transformed into a living community eco-museum examining the social life of Greenough from Aboriginal time to the present.

The Greenough Wildlife and Bird Park is a privately run rescue facility for injured and sick wildlife. ENTRY FEE: $12 adults $9 kids. Concessions prices.

Dongara

40 km (25 min drive) south of Greenough is Dongara. If you are in need of a coffee stop, Moreton Bay Café is a pleasant place for it. The tiny cottage sits beneath a beautiful big shady fig tree.

The Illegal Tender Rum Co does tours and tastings for $30 (includes a gift). They have some great rum cocktail recipes on their website if you happen to pick up a bottle while you’re there. They are a community-minded company that supports local non profits.

As you continue to Jurien Bay, stop at Fishermans lookout and Grigson Lookout for great photo opportunities.
