Discover our Region

Explore the Riverina

Make Griffith your base and spend a couple of days out and about exploring the region.

Head south to Darlington Point and enjoy the walks, wildlife and attractions in and around the Murrumbidgee River. Altina Wildlife Park is a fantastic Australian zoofari with guided tours taking about two and a half hours. Soak up the unique Yarrow Park cellar door atmosphere in Coleambally, trying their award-winning extra virgin olive oil and table olives complemented with the boutique wines.

Head east to Leeton via Whitton and take a tour through the Southern Cotton Gin (May to October) and get educated on the cotton ginning processes. You can’t pass by the Whitton Malt House with their unique cellar door experience partnered with regional food, outdoor activities and a beautiful setting to kick back and relax. Once in Leeton make sure to visit the Fivebough Wetlands, the majestic Art Deco Roxy Theatre (currently under renovations) and not to be missed is the Leeton Museum and Gallery, a cultural experience showcasing Leeton’s water story in an interactive and interpretive way. Continue to Narrandera and visit Lake Talbot Water Park or picnic and relax by the river. Look out for one of our best loved native animals at the Narrandera Koala Reserve, home to more than 200 healthy koalas.

Follow the Art Deco Way through Leeton, Narrandera and Darlington Point. The self-drive touring route features over 45 Art Deco era buildings public artwork, tourist attractions and natural wonders.

Head northeast of Griffith, out through Yenda and the country changes to broad acre farming, open plains, gentle rolling hills and large-scale wheat, barley and canola production. Fields of bright yellow flowering canola are a truly magnificent sight and are at their best in August. There are plenty of lovely old pubs to visit on your way, as well as a scrumptious cheese factory in Coolamon and the Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory.

Follow scenic highways and wide country roads across the Riverina along the Riverina Outdoor Art Trail. Covering more than 500kms, the Trail includes magnificent silo and water tower murals, (the Weethalle silos are a must see!) back lane art and fantastic outdoor sculptures.
