Hermits Caves and Lookout


Hermits Cave is situated to the left and down a path below the former Sir Dudley de Chair's Lookout - now named the Hermits Cave Lookout.

The cave was once the home of Valerio Riccetti, a miner from Broken Hill. After being jilted, he left Broken Hill and lived the life of a hermit in his cave on Scenic Hill.

During World War II, he was interned and after his release he returned to the cave. He became very ill and sought refuge from one of the local doctors. In return for treatment he tended the doctor's garden.

The hermit again became very ill and the citizens of Griffith collected money and sent him back to his home country in Italy where three months later he died.

Call into the Griffith Visitors Information Centre for a copy of the Hermit's story and Heritage Trail brochure.

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.
