Tenterfield Soundtrail


Tenterfield Soundtrail

Located at the very tip of New South Wales, just 20km over the border, is Tenterfield. Not only is it surrounded by national parks, but Tenterfield is built upon a multitude of crossroads, including: between the coast and the western plains, state lines and traditional Aboriginal tribal lands.

The Tenterfield Soundtrail is a celebration of all the things that make this town unique and special. Beginning at the creek and moving along the main street of the busy town, you’ll laugh and delight in stories of what it means to be a local, talking cats, the ghosts of the jail, and German brass bands, to name a few.

Heartfelt and unforgettable, these are the sounds and the tales from the people of Tenterfield, produced by some world-class radio producers, and with a little help from the kids of St Joseph’s school.
