Roaring log fires, snow-dotted mountains, glistening frosts, hearty country food, 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 the northern NSW tablelands in the cooler months.
The 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.
Mount Mackenzie beckons visitors to take a scenic drive to the lookout, boasting panoramic views over the region. Local wineries, galleries, museums and historical sights invite you inside to retreat from the crisp alpine air.
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.
