The Great Outdoors
Surrounded by lovely lakes, wildflower-filled national parks, farm and heritage trails, rivers and more.
Griffith offers abundant areas to explore in the great outdoors. Get back to nature with a walk in the Cocoparra National Park; visit after the 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. For something a little shorter explore the Hermit’s Cave trails while walking the steps of the elusive Valeri Ricetti, or take in the expansive views at Scenic Lookout. Lake Wyangan is a great open vast space just 12 kilometres from the city centre with BBQ facilities and for the twitcher a variety of bird species can be found here.
If you are into sports Griffith has so much to offer including golf, swimming, Saturday morning Parkrun and the weekly “hill run” with the Feral Joggers or if you’ve brought your skateboard check out the state-of-the-art skate park in town. If cycling is your thing, pop into the Visitor Information Centre to pick up a map.
A walk around the city centre is also a great way to experience Griffith where you can view the Banna Lane Murals, Centenary Sculptures, Lions Club Photo Wall in Memorial Park and the various memorial statues along the main street or just simply to get a feel for our city.
