Griffith is in the heart of the Wiradjuri nation, and many members of our community are Wiradjuri people, often originating from surrounding areas such as Narrandera and Darlington Point. Our community also includes people who are descended from other language groups such as Yota Yota people, Ngiyampaa people and Paakantji people.

Griffith was created as part of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA) project, a plan to supply irrigation from the Murrumbidgee river to open up western New South Wales for farming. The town plan for Griffith was designed by Walter Burley Griffin. Griffith was proclaimed as a city in 1987.
