Barellan Showground is around 40 minutes east of Griffith. We headed to Barellan for a look around for a future stay. The new caretakers, Mark and Denise came out to greet us and were happy to show us around.
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 Drive..
This is a great stop! 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.
