The Greenough Front Flats were first settled in 1852 and within a few years had developed into a highly successful wheat growing area.

By 1900 most of the settlers had either left the area of given up wheat farming for grazing. It wasn't until the 1980s that a concerted effort was made to revitalise the settlement.

Today it is one of the premier attractions of the Central West.

Beyond this National Trust zone lie the ruins of the Wesley Church (the area was settled by large numbers of Wesleyans), the gracious old Grays Store, Clinch's Mill and the Greenough Hotel.

As well, a short distance up the road is the companion settlement of Walkaway.

A cyclone caused enormous damage in 1872, the area experienced bad flooding in 1888, and the wheat was adversely affected by red rust.

These mishaps were enough to persuade many of the farmers to try their luck in the newly discovered goldfields to the east.
