Greenough (42 km north) is an all but abandoned historic rural
community that developed on the Greenough Plains in the mid 19th
century. Essentially a ghost town, Greenough is one of the most
interesting historic towns in Australia, it is claimed by some to be
the country's best preserved nineteenth century town.
(46 km north) A charming village, the main interest for visitors
being the Walkaway Station Museum. Housed in the old railway station
building, this museum has an excellent display of regional transport,
natural resources, weapons and military relics. Ellendale Pool, 20 km
from Walkaway, is a lovely natural pool at the foot of river cliffs and
is surrounded by tall shady trees. It makes a lovely spot for a picnic,
barbecue or bird watching.
