  • 57 km

The trail begins at the Greenough Museum on Phillips Road off Brand Highway 405km north of Perth and 19km south of Geraldton, and ends at Ellendale Pool. It provides a pleasant outing with facilities for picnicking. As there is much to see in the Central Greenough Historic Settlement and surrounds, the museums and other sites, many trail users may wish to spend longer in this historic area. Following the trail route map, look for signs bearing the Heritage Trails Network symbol.

Some of the sites along the trail are private homes and not open to the public. Please ensure you pick up a map and brochure at Central Greenough before setting out.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
