The birthplace of our nation

Step out of your imagination and into the unspoilt beauty of Tenterfield. Tenterfield offers the trifecta of countryside, national parks and history, enticing travellers with its genuine stories, people and adventure.

Distinguished by its warm hospitality and earthly delights, Tenterfield is full of simple, honest treasures waiting to be found.

Straddling the Queensland/New South Wales border in the north and across the range from New South Wales’ northern rivers, this region inspires with its alpine summers, vibrant autumn reds, white-frosted winters and floral springs.

Adventure seekers, history buffs and boutique lovers alike are bound to find something that speaks to their true soul in this town cocooned by national parks.

The streets of the main township are lined with heritage-listed buildings from bygone years, with a town centre that offers everything you need for a perfect stay – including plenty of good dining options, great coffee, beautiful shops, and all types of accommodation within walking distance from it all.

The region is also home to seven villages – Urbenville, Drake, Jennings, Legume, Liston, Torrington and Mingoola – offering visitors a myriad of opportunities to get off the beaten track and discover history, nature and culture.

Here, you’re on Tenterfield time; time to reconnect, time to explore and time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
