Griffith is a major regional city in the beautiful Riverina region of south-western New South Wales, one of a series of locations commonly referred to as the “food bowl” of Australia for supplying about one third of the country’s food supply.
The city’s diverse population and strong Italian-Australian heritage has contributed to its world-class fresh produce and wineries, including common household brands De Bortoli, McWilliam’s and Yellow Tail. The annual Rewind in the Vines festival is a celebration of the wineries that put Griffith in the global spotlight, enjoyed to a backdrop of Australian rock music from the 1970s and 80s. Other annual family-friendly affairs that attract locals and visitors alike are the Spring Fest, Griffith Multicultural Festival and Griffith Easter Party, which includes a fun run, old-style fair and roving buskers.
Exploring the Pioneer Park Museum’s 30 historically significant buildings makes for a fun and informative day out, while the Griffith Regional Art Gallery is one of New South Wales’ leading galleries, offering an impressive culture hit with up to 10 exhibitions annually. For those keen to explore the outdoors, Griffith is renowned for The Hermit’s Cave, a heritage-listed series of stone structures and exotic plants that stretches for more than a kilometre across Scenic Hill.
