Nice little country airport with well cared-for gardens. Interestingly busy place with Regional Express flights dominating. Check-in rather odd with no check-in allowed until 45 minutes before departure. No wonder less-frequent flyers get confused when faced with check-in for other airlines and airports closing 30 minutes before departrue (eg Jetstar) and here we have an airport not allowing any check-in at all until 45 minutes before departure. Makes for an interesting rush of people. Pleasant terminal spoilt by a television blaring away in one corner making it difficult to get some work done. Good car rental facilities but beware on driving out of Griffith Airport around dusk watch for big kangaroos in abundance on the airport access road.
