Call for expressions of interest
The National Trust of Western Australia is seeking expressions of interest from potential partners to create sustainable and compatible new uses for several significant heritage places on the historic Greenough Flats, 23km south of Geraldton. Proposals are welcomed to repurpose these places to suit mutual cultural, environmental and economic strategic objectives.
The properties subject to expressions of interest are included on the State Register of Heritage Places and comprise:
- Gray’s Store
- Wesleyan Church
- Stone Barn and Cottage
- Cliff Grange
- Clinch’s Mill
- Greenough Hotel
- St James’ Church
These places are all part of an extensive portfolio of heritage places managed by the National Trust in Western Australia. Expressions of interest may be submitted for individual places, a selected group or places or all places on this list.
Central Greenough (historic settlement), on the Brand Highway which links Indian Ocean Drive with Geraldton in Western Australia’s Coral Coast, is situated close to the places under consideration however does not form part of this expression of interest. Redevelopment of these vacant places near Central Greenough has the potential to build on the cultural tourism offering in the area.
Central Greenough is open to the public daily. As a highly significant heritage place, Central Greenough aims to become one of the key places to visit in the region. It is currently one of the National Trust’s most visited properties in the State and has the potential to attract a greater number of visitors.
Cultural tourism is an important element in the mix of visitor attractions to the region. Tourism data shows that key attractions have the potential to increase the length of stay of visitors; and that cultural tourists generally stay longer and spend more on their visits. We welcome your ideas and proposals to re-purpose our vacant heritage places to suit mutual economic, environmental, and cultural objectives.
The National Trust’s objectives include, but are not limited to:
- Development of sustainable places with compatible new uses
- Integration of cultural heritage values in any proposed work
- Exploration of the potential to open the places to visitors
The National Trust strives to maintain strong and vibrant partnerships with government, businesses and community organisations along the Coral Coast and in the Mid West region. It also supports active community engagement with the State’s heritage, including sensitive redevelopment enhanced by interpretation. Finding a new use for vacant historic places within the significant Greenough Flats can enhance community awareness of the area’s heritage values.
