Welcome aboard for an exciting tour of the Griffith ‘SPRING FESTIVAL’. Today we travel north into NSW to Jerilderie for morning tea then on through
Darlington Point on the Murrumbidgee

the Information Centre, where we can
wander through the interpretive display area.
An introductory town tour gives
us the chance to admire the imaginative and colourful Citrus sculptures along Banna Avenue. This afternoon we visit a magnificent open garden, with its own
unique character. We return to the
Motel for Dinner and settle in for our two nights Stay at The Kidman Wayside Inn, Griffith.

condiments and olives, made with love in the Riverina. After stopping for lunch

Museum then off to explore another garden before
returning to our motel to freshen up before dinner.

Mediterranean climate combined with the abundance of water from the Murrumbidgee
Irrigation Scheme provides optimum conditions for the spring awakening and the
Griffith Spring Festival. We visit the Catania Fruit Salad Farm for a
