Henry Lawson – 6

Grenfell, the birthplace of Henry Lawson, and also mentioned in a previous blog, has recently unveiled a new bronze statue of the poet. It shows Lawson sitting on a park bench and there is room for tourists to sit beside him to have their photo taken.

Grenfell already had an impressive bust of Henry Lawson as part of a memorial in the main street. Grenfell’s Henry Lawson Festival will also held on the first weekend in June.
