Looking for something to do over the Easter long weekend? Add Tenterfield’s Autumn Festival to your list.
Celebrating its third year, Tenterfield is putting itself on the map with a wide range of events, food, and entertainment sure to please everyone.
“Easter use to be time where people would travel away from Tenterfield, so now we are giving people a reason to stay and play.” said Tenterfield Autumn Festival Committee Member, Kerri Hampton.
It’s Tenterfield’s time to shine with cooler weather and the picturesque landscape of changing autumn trees.
The four-day Festival from Friday April 7 to Monday April 10 is sure to deliver with Easter Egg hunts, wine tours, high teas and more.
“Last year’s Autumn Easter egg hunt we had one thousand kids turn up, it was huge. It is about family and having something for everyone. Easter Egg hunt, barefoot bowls, small animals farm, helicopter rides and we have the biggest camp oven cooking king in Australia, Ron Wilson, coming for three days to do free camp oven demonstrations.” said Ms Hamptons.
Some events are ticketed so get in quick to avoid disappointment.
“Glen Rock Gardens is hosting a gourmet luncheon. Glen Rock was Australia’s best private garden and they have just set up a new facility out there and they are having a seven-course degustation lunch. You don’t want to miss this.”
The festival will showcase what is around the shire, such as wine tours, cheeses, truffles, local producers and those local hidden gems.
“Tenterfield’s Piano Mill won a world architecture award a few years ago. It has 16 pianos and is amazing. A must see.”
Situated on the third busiest highway, Tenterfield will draw in plenty of interest even if its for a short stay, so start planning your trip now.
“Accommodation is booking up so get in quick. There are plenty of camping options and nothing better than sitting around the fire after a day of fun sipping some wine or scotch.”
