The largest centre in the rich agricultural Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA), the city of Griffith was designed by Walter Burley Griffin, the renowned American architect who also designed Canberra.
The history of Griffith from the time when it was known as 'Bagtown' - because the early irrigation canal builders used hessian bags to construct their humpies - has been preserved in the Griffith Pioneer Park Museum. Set in 18ha of bushland on Remembrance Drive, this living village preserves 40 original and replica buildings and a large collection of machinery and implements. Walking tracks from the Pioneer Park Museum lead to lookouts on Scenic Hill.
