Grenfell is a quintessential, Australian town offering visitors an authentic, country experience. Grenfell is a leisurely half day drive from Sydney or two and a half hours from Canberra. It has some of the best examples of heritage architecture in Australia with the Main Street maintaining the charm of days gone by. A walk around town gives the visitor an idea of life during the gold rush. It is a place where old meets new - behind the buildings beautiful old facades are modern shops catering for everyone. Close by is the Weddin Mountains National Park, a haven for native animals and bird life. The Weddin Mountains were a hangout for bushranger Ben Hall and his gang and you can still view Ben Halls Cave. Seaton's Farm is a great example of how the settlers to the areas battled the elements and is located near the Weddin Mountains National Park. The Henry Lawson Festival is held every June long weekend to celebrate Henry Lawson's birth and highlights include street stalls, live performances, art and photography exhibitions, street carnival, poetry readings, historical tours and more. Grenfell is a farming community growing canola, wheat, oats, barley and raising beef cattle and sheep.
