Greenbushes has everything you could want in one simple, easy-going town. Greenbushes is a historic timber and mining town located between Balingup and Bridgetown and has a tantalising history which is showcased around the town.
The Public Mine Lookout gives a birds-eye-view into the Cornwall Pit where tantalum ore was extracted in open cut mining until 2003. Open daily, the lookout provides one of the few opportunities in Western Australia for the public to view an operational mine site. The Discovery Centre provides information about the town’s history, including interactive displays and a mine walk.
There are various trails that take in waterways, pools and old-growth forest as well as the Greenbushes Pool and Boardwalk, a spring-fed natural pool with a picnic area, barbecue facilities and a boardwalk with signposted walks.
Take time to explore the conservation areas around Greenbushes where you may spot wildlife in nesting boxes along walk trails.
