Tenterfield

Step out of your imagination and into the unspoilt beauty of Tenterfield. Located in the New South Wales high country, Tenterfield offers the trifecta of countryside, national park and history, enticing travellers with its genuine stories, people and adventures.

Distinguished by its warm hospitality and earthly delights, Tenterfield is full of simple, honest treasures waiting to be found. Tenterfield will make you feel right at home.

Tenterfield is located at the northern end of the New England region, at the intersection of the New England and Bruxner Highways. The closest nearby large town is Stanthorpe, Queensland, being 56 km north via the New England Highway. Tenterfield is three hours from Brisbane (276 km), three hours from Byron Bay, New South Wales (205 km), two hours from Armidale, New South Wales (188 km). The town is on the north-western stretch of the Northern Tablelands plateau, a spur of the Great Dividing Range, and is nestled in a valley beneath Mount Mackenzie (1,287m elevation), one of the highest points along the Northern Tablelands.

Living in Tenterfield provides doctors and health professionals with access to world leading NSW public school education system at Henry Parkes Primary School, Tenterfield High School and St Jospeh's Catholic Primary School. 

In Tenterfield your dollar goes a lot further, giving you greater flexibility to continue your education, send your children to the top schools and universities, and take regular holidays.

Tenterfield is a high demand market for health and medical services. This means that doctors can earn a good income compared to highly competitive and over-supplied city locations.

But it is a low-cost market for housing, with the median price around $257,500 compared to a median price in Sydney of $1.2 million.  This sprawling modern house with 32Ha of land (opposite) is on the market asking $695,000.  Highly paid doctors have the option to live in some of the most prestigious housing in town at an affordable price.
