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


A town originally built as a service town during the gold rush in the 1800s. It was also the birthplace of Henry Lawson, who was a prolific and famous Australian poet. However, he left while still a baby, and never actually wrote much about the town. The single poem, Said Grenfell to my spirit, is never-the-less quaint. You'll have no shortage of places to read the entire poem when you get there, especially during the Henry Lawson Festival, when you'll hear it recited.
