Granville is one of Sydney's suburbs, located in the New South Wales region of Australia. Granville is surrounded by other suburbs, including Harris Park, Rosehill, Silverwater, Auburn, South Granville, Guildford and Merrylands. Even though Granville has a population of only 1855, this small suburb is a great place to live in, especially if you are visiting Sydney, because it is located only 14 miles away from the big city, but is stayed away from the industrialization.
Granville started to develop in the 1850s, because it was the final stop of the railway back then. Then, Granville became a residential area, which is also developed from a commercial point of view. Even though Granville is what you can call a very small town, its architecture is impressive and it holds some amazing buildings.
