    Heritage & Museums

    Griffith was proclaimed a town in 1916, a little more than one hundred years of history and heritage to explore. Take a step back in time and truly experience this period at one of our museums including the Pioneer Park Museum, Griffith Italian Museum, and the Irrigation and Wine Museum. To get a glimpse of the social history linked to operations of ex-servicemen, women and their families from Griffith, along with military items on display, a visit to the Griffith War Memorial Museum should not be missed. The Griffith Italian Heritage trail takes you on a tour of places that tell the story of the Italian settlement in Griffith. Some of these places no longer exist, while others have changed title. Collectively, they document the enduring legacy of Italian migration in Griffith's landscape. Pick up a trail map from the Griffith Visitor Information Centre.

    Once inside Cocoparra National Park, the huge sky of the outback is painted with the distinctive Cocoparra Range. This dramatic and rugged place is a haven for bushwalkers, birdwatchers and nature-lovers, with a landscape that's vividly alive and always changing. Visit after rain to see the waterfalls and creeks in full flow and come in spring to see the wonderful variety of wildflowers; orchids, wattles and tea tree bring extra vibrancy to the land. Other seasonal delights include the nesting season of the majestic peregrine falcons and the sight of rainbow bee-eaters building their homes in the ground you'll know them by their amazing spectrum of colour. Make sure you take the walking tracks up to the ridge to capture the views of the vast plains and other geological formations. Stay for a bush camp to really appreciate all the park has to offer. It's an incredibly peaceful place to spend the night. Before you head out, make sure to check the National Parks and Wildlife Service website for current alerts and park closures. ?>
