Griffith

Griffith is the heart of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA) and is one of the largest wine and vegetable production areas in Australia. On your way into the city of Griffith you'll be surrounded by the glorious fragrance of citrus orchards, cushioned in the low hills that stretch all around. The town was originally designed by Walter Burley Griffin, a landscape architect from Chicago (also responsible for the urban development of Canberra). Griffith is renowned for its fine wineries, and there are few more delectable ways to spend a lazy weekend than touring this area and sampling the local fruity fare - in every shade of red and white.

Griffith Citrus Sculptures


Griffith comes alive with an amazing display of more than 60, larger than life, three dimensional Citrus Sculptures. The Citrus Sculptures line the main street of Griffith, creating a spectacular gateway to the city and are on display for two weeks. The Sculptures are wacky and creative and include a grand piano, a giant guitar, a chicken, and a Cinderella horse and carriage.

The Sculptures are unique to Australia, and are based on the famous lemon sculptures of Menton, France. They are created using 100,000 oranges and rubber bands, and an army of 700 volunteers. Sculptures are created by schools, service clubs, community groups and multi-national companies - it is a fabulous community event.

The Sculptures are celebrated during the Griffith Festival of Gardens in October.
