Grenfell

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Grenfell is a town around 350km west of Sydney in New South Wales.

Understand[edit]

A town originally built as a service town during the gold rush. It was also the birthplace of Henry Lawson, who was a prolific and famous Australian poet. Not that he stayed there for long after he was born, or that he wrote about Grenfell all that much. Just the one poem, "Said Grenfell to my spirit". You can read it when you get there.

Get in[edit]
