Tenterfield, NSW

Sir Henry Parkes delivered his famous ‘Birth of a Nation’ speech in Tenterfield, leading to Australian federation. This proud town still glows from that historical moment today, continuing to feel special in a way that’s reflected in the overall warm atmosphere it projects. Get a sense of colonial Australia superbly exemplified in Tenterfield, then make best of its position astride the Great Divide by traversing the Bonoo State Forest, Bonoo Boonoo National Park, and the curious but stunning land formation of Bald Rock.
