Welcome to Griffith

Although designed in part by architect and town planner Walter Burley Griffin (famed for Canberra's unique streetscapes), Griffith won't knock your socks off at first sight. Dig a little deeper though to find some pretty heritage architecture.

The area's traditional Indigenous owners are the Wiradjuri people, and 1970s tennis star Evonne Goolagong was born in Griffith and grew up in the nearby town of Barellan.

Griffith's other claim to fame (which locals would probably rather forget) is that it was the hideout of underworld crime boss Robert Trimbole, the subject of Australian TV series Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities.
