Tenterfield, Australia

Tenterfield is dominated by the Granite Belt that spans both the Bald Rock and Girraween National Park areas and wanders into Queensland, Australia. Needless to say, it is a rural area with many forests and protected areas, as well as sheep and cattle farms that fuel the economy of the area. Climbers, spelunkers and hikers will enjoy Bald Rock and other geological wonders in the area, and history enthusiasts will love the aboriginal sites and registered heritage buildings in the main town.
