Exploring Griffith

The verdant town of Griffith in the middle of the state of New South Wales is one of the main towns in the Riverina region. It is well known as an agricultural success story in an otherwise harsh region, and is especially good at churning out fruits and wines. The city was laid out by Walter Burley Griffin—the same architect that chalked up Canberra—but takes its name after Arthur Griffith, while Italian immigrants made up much of the populace post WWII.


The town is a long way from Sydney and Melbourne, but is wealthier than most other towns in the region due to its agricultural success, and there are thus plenty of services for visitors. Much of the accommodation is motel or backpacker based, and is cheap, although there are some Three Star Hotels in Griffith for those looking for more comfort.

There is a range of options for all travelers. The most popular hotel in Griffith is the East Hotel, which has been booked 5 times from our Hotels.com verified guests. Our guests also highly recommended Manuka Park Apartments in Griffith as it has been reserved 5 times.


Sights nearby

The city is green on account of the irrigation. There is much to see nearby, including the intriguing Cocoparra National Park, while Griffith itself has a handful of attractions in its own right.


- Scenic Hill Reserve


The main landmark of the city is this huge park to the north, which is home to several important attractions. The Pioneer Park Museum is the main one; a mock-up of a typical Riverina region village from the early days. It is complete with recreated and original buildings, including a hospital, shops, farm buildings, and even a music room. You can also learn all about the early irrigation of the land from here.


- Hermits Cave


Hermits Cave is farther north in the Scenic Hill Reserve and was built by one of the many Italian immigrants to Griffith. The 17-year-old Valerio Recitti—a worker on the Murray River steamers—holed up here and eventually made a home for himself, and an elaborate one at that. He shifted a huge amount of rock, mostly at night, creating gardens, walkways, and even galleries.


- Cocoparra National Park


A major attraction in the area is this massive national park in the Binya State Forest. It’s a relatively short drive from the Griffith district via the Burley Griffin Way and comes with striking scenery across a low mountain range. Twisted trees, colourful wildflowers, and rocky outcrops are the main themes, along with scenic mini-gorges, such as the deep Ladysmith Glen. There’s great walking via dried, cascading waterfalls, as well as stunning sunsets, while bird lovers will have a ball, with everything from parrots, honeyeaters, and even peregrine falcons to snoop on.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

While Griffith is not completely on its own in this area, it is the main town for miles and, as such, it has a good deal of restaurants and bars, most of which are on Banna Avenue, the main street in the town centre. Most places to stay at are motels, such as the semi-upmarket Comfort Inn Gemini, which is close to the railway station and Griffith Regional Art Gallery. Accommodation tends to double as restaurants and/or pubs. The pick of the shopping is also along Banna Avenue, with the large Griffin Plaza just off it.

Public transport

Griffith Bus Lines has services along Banna Avenue and parallel streets out to the suburbs all day long, although you will need a car to visit Cocoparra National Park. Having a bike in this town is a good idea, and there are several places to rent them from, such as ABEST or your hotel. Banna Avenue is easy enough on the feet but it’s worth taking a taxi from one of the main landmarks or hotels at night.
