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 Spring Fest - Citrus Sculptures


Griffith comes alive with an amazing display of more than 70, 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 chook, talking robot and a Cinderella carriage with horses.

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, young and old. Sculptures are created by schools, service clubs, community groups and multi-national companies - it is a fabulous community event.

The Sculptures are the hero event of the Griffith Spring Fest.

Griffith Spring Fest - Garden Festival


Visit Griffith during the annual Spring Fest and you'll enjoy visiting beautiful private gardens and attending workshops with the Special guest.

Eight private gardens are usually open to the public. On the edge of Griffith, these large rambling country gardens feature productive vegetable plots and orchards, ornate structures, secret pathways and white trunked forests. The gardens reflect the passion of the owners and offer a tranquil and colourful environment to relax and explore. With catering offered at most of the gardens, you can easily stay put for a while and enjoy the cafe garden space.

The daily Garden Tour Bus is a popular way to explore the open gardens, and a lovely day out. With lunch and a visit to four gardens included, be sure to book a seat as places are limited and book quickly. The friendly local driver is a real bonus who provides knowledge and stats of the local area.
