Tenterfield Travel Guide: 46 reviews and 91 photos

A doubly famous town.

One reason, the late Peter Allen's grandfather was said to be the song's "Tenterfield Saddler"
The other reason is in our political history.
VT member "iandsmith" has covered the town so brilliantly, that there is very little I could add. Visit his Tenterfield pages.
I don't know if Ian mentioned it, but I heard from the Q'ld side of the border that there is talk of straightening the border line in that neck of the woods and Tenterfield would become part of Q'ld. A bit of a drastic change! Probably just one of those perennial rumours.
(Anyway, my humble apologies. Due to a tragedy with my film camera, still pics are not available. Will have some video grabs up ASAP. Please return.)
