Greenbushes - Cities, Towns and Localities
Greenbushes is located only 17 km from Bridgetown, on the highest point of the Darling Scarp, and gets it’s name after the Green Bushes Well, located south of the town. The well was a watering place on the road joining Bunbury to Bridgetown and named after the bright green bushes growing in the area.

It was in 1886 that a surveyor reported that there was tin in alluvial deposits in the area and in 1888, David William Stinton found half a pound of tin in a gully, that saw an influx of miners and prospectors. The prosperity of the town was built not only on tin, but lithium, tantalum, farming and timber.

Today, this picturesque heritage town, with panoramic views of the surrounding farmlands and forest, offers some great beautiful scenic drives and trails. Drop into the any of the centres below for more information.
