Sitting high in the pristine New England Tablelands, Tenterfield Shire provides some of the most beautiful and unique national parks in New South Wales.
A natural playground for visitors, the rugged mountainous terrain presents spectacular scenic views across northern New South Wales and southern Queensland. Marvel at curious granite outcrops and rock formations that form part of this unique landscape, none as spectacular as Bald Rock, the largest granite monolith in the southern hemisphere.
Walk, hike, or ride through the forests and woodlands of the region’s many national parks and reserves – Bald Rock, Boonoo Boonoo, Torrington, Tooloom, Koreelah and Basket Swamp – all offering their own distinctive experiences and sights to behold. Neighbouring national parks, Girraween and Sundown, are just over the border in Queensland, creating a continuous path of green space to explore. There is no shortage of trails, creeks, rivers, waterholes, waterfalls and rockpools to discover or birds and wildlife to meet.
Let Tenterfield reconnect you to Mother Nature in a way no other place can.
