Spring is a great time to head to the high country, when the wildflowers, rock orchids and wattle come out, the days are beautiful and the nights cool and crisp. Home to amazing national parks, wineries, historical sights, attractions and museums, great shopping and delicious food – you’ll be suprised at all there is to see and do in Tenterfield, a short 3.5 hours drive from Brisbane.
The Spring days in Tenterfield & District are stunning, sunny with beautiful blue skies and only a light jacket is needed. The nights are still cool enough to enjoy sitting in front of a roaring log fire with a bottle of local red. During the day, why not visit Kurrajong Downs Wines, and sample a selection of their reds, whites, sparkling or sweet wines. The 2016 vintage is bottled, and the whites are delicious.
The walks through the National Parks, Bald Rock and Boonoo Boonoo are glorious at this time of year, with all the wattle that is out, and wildflowers poking through the forest floor. The rock orchids should be flowering soon, and are certainly a beautiful site.
And of course, the museums and boutique shops are just as inviting as ever! Tenterfield in Spring – come up and see the colour!
