Barellan Showground is around 40 minutes east of Griffith. We first headed to Barellan for a look around when Larry got a job in the area on a breadacre farm. When we returned for harvest we stayed a week at the showground. The caretakers, Mark and Denise have made the place one travellers want to return to.
Mark has helped put more water points in and you will find many powered sites around the showground. Big rigs will find they have loads of room in this large showground.
Mark and Denise have cleaned and painted the old toilet/shower block. Adding plants and a small book exchange. Also, a new set of amenities are almost finished being put in. Denise mentioned she will be planting a small herb garden which travellers will be able to pick, how lovely is that!
Barellan Showground also has a dump point for those of us that like to use our own facilities.
Have A Walk To..
Barellan Showground is a short walk away from the main street of this small town, which is in the centre of the Riverina
👍 The Big Tennis Racquet, a tribute to Evonne Goolagong Cawley who was ranked the number one player in the world in 1971 and 1976.
👍 The Commercial Hotel which has meals Wednesday to Saturday and also has FREE camping for patrons.
👍 The Barellan & District War Memorial Club has a Chinese restaurant – Dinner Thursday to Sunday and lunch Saturday & Sunday.
👍 You will also find essentials like a grocery store, the Golden Grain cafe and a post office/gift shop.
The main street also has “Off The Farm Arts & Gifts”. Now, you’re not likely to find it open, but don’t let that put you off. Have a bit of a window shop and if you find something you like. Call the number on the window and Amanda will come open up for you.
👍 The Barellan swimming pool is a short stroll away. As well as two pools it boasts a cafe style seating area. Have a coffee, cold drink or ice cream on a hot day.
Have A Drive..
If your only staying for a night you don’t have to un-hook to enjoy this small country town. If you’re staying for longer though you can have a drive to Weethalle to see the painted silo, only 30 minutes north.
Griffith is only 40 minutes away where you can check out some wineries or Italian eateries in the area. An hour away is Coolamon where you can see the Cheese factory and take some home.
