Discover our region through audio stories.
Tenterfield is a town built on crossroads – between the coast and the western plains, traditional aboriginal lands, state lines, time zomes and railway gauges.
The Tenterfield soundtrail carries you up the creek and down the main street of town, and into the history, the hearts and minds of the locals. Hear stories of the ghosts in the jailhouse, the playful patter of what it means to be a local, talking cats, German brass bands and Peter Allen’s manna from heaven. This is a celebration of Tenterfield – the town, its history and people.
Beautiful sounds and stories produced by world-class radio producers … with some help from the kids of St Joseph’s school.
The Tenterfield Soundtrail was made possible by St Joseph’s School Tenterfield and the Armidale Catholic Schools Office.
