Tenterfield Campsite


There is something about driving into Tenterfield that takes you back to another era, the old buildings and the homes that seem frozen in time. The surprising lack of “Big Macafication” which gives you a sense of driving smack bang into 1973. Not a lot has changed since then, it’s a great feeling and one not lost on our travelling mates Dave and Gary all of us remembering 1973 as if it were only yesterday. But we’re not here to stop in town, we are on our way to the Kookaburra Caravan Park.

The team are yearning for more wide-open spaces, so rolling out of town we make our way toward a new campground 50km away. A campground and caravan park known as Kookaburra. Just shy of Glenn Innes if you’re travelling South, Kookaburra Caravan Park is just off the New England Highway. A comfy location to stay after a long days drive if you’re towing the van.
