Winter in Tenterfield

Glistening frosts, adventure-filled days, hearty country food, roaring log fires, and a rich, bold bottle of red – this is winter in Tenterfield!

Some destinations really draw you in at winter and Tenterfield is one of them. For an unforgettable experience, put on your woolly coat, warm scarf and cosy beanie and explore our region in the cooler months.

National Parks provide plenty of opportunities to enjoy the crisp sunny winter days. The native trees, grasses and shrubs provide a green canopy year-round, and the animals are still very active, giving you an up-close natural encounter.

There are so many things to do across the region, such as visiting local wineries, galleries, museums and historical sights that invite you inside to retreat from the crisp alpine air. Just a short drive from the main township, Mount Mackenzie beckons visitors to take a scenic drive to the lookout, boasting panoramic views over the region and sometimes even snow! The region is also home to several village areas in the north, south, east and west; each with unique landscapes and attractions awaiting your discovery.

At night, cosy up by the warmth of a roaring fire as you enjoy a hearty winter meal and a glass of local wine from the comfort of one of the many restaurants or accommodation venues in the region.

Experience the magic of winter in Tenterfield.
