Expressions of interest now open to lease Central Greenough Café and Visitor Centre

The Expression of Interest seeks proposals from suitably qualified operators to deliver innovative and high-quality food, beverage, retail and community services within one of Western Australia’s most prominent heritage tourism places, Central Greenough.

The National Trust is seeking detailed EOI proposals for the lease of Central Greenough Café and Visitor Centre premises. We want to hear from organisations or individuals with the necessary skills, experience, imagination and financial resources to deliver improved amenity to the café and add value to the visitor experience of the wider historic settlement.

Historic Central Greenough

Located approximately 25km south of Geraldton and 380km north of Perth, the Greenough Flats form the flood plain of the river system close to the mouth of the Greenough River.

During the 1860s Greenough became a thriving agricultural area and developed as the local administrative centre; housing churches, schools, stores, government, and law enforcement offices necessary to service the increasing population.

Today the heart of Greenough – a collection of eleven preserved heritage buildings including a gaol, courthouse, police station, churches, and school – continues to share the stories of our people and capture the extraordinary history of our State and the region in the 1800s.

The cultural heritage values of Central Greenough are well recognised and the process of conserving and interpreting the historic settlement has been a continuing project of the National Trust of Western Australia since the 1970s.

The Central Greenough precinct has high visitor numbers and access to the place is via a recently constructed contemporary café with a commercial kitchen.
