Step back in time: Visit Historic Grenfell


Enjoyed a wonderful experience, visiting the historic town of Grenfell.

Grenfell Caravan Park: Bob awakes, after sleeping the night in his tent. (The temperature was below zero on this occasion).


Grenfell’s history is so evident as you stroll down the main street and visit some of its old buildings and spend time talking to local character’s, some who have spent a lifetime living in Grenfell. The town came into being as a result of gold being found back in 1866. A highlight was to visit O’Briens Hill and take a walk through the old gold diggings and shaft where so much gold was found and view the remnant mining machinery.

We camped at the local Grenfell caravan park which we found to be very clean and conveniently located within walking distance into town and to numerous points of interest viz. the magnificent aquatic centre, Company Dam, the Silos, Historic Railway station, the Chrysler Car Museum, Visitor Information centre and so much more. Found Clare at the Visitors centre to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Royal Hotel Grenfell


Jack’s Garden is a ‘MUST SEE” when visiting the historic Grenfell area.

Highly recommended, sitting outside at the rear of the Royal Hotel in Jack’s Garden and enjoying a beer and/or meal.

Jack has incorporated a lot of Grenfell’s wonderful history into his back yard garden setting at the Royal Hotel.

You may even be able to play with his pet ‘Blue Tongue’ lizard.   (Click on pics to enlarge)
