TENTERFIELD TREES

Here are some more photos of Autumn Trees in Tenterfield, a small country town in northern NSW. It sits in a valley amid the Great Dividing Range. It's main industries are beef and wool. It is famous for  being the town where Sir Henry Parkes delivered his Federation Speech in 1889. The speech ignited the debate that ultimately led to Federation on 1 January 1901. (When Australia became a country in its own right and no longer a colony of Britain.) 
Tenterfield is also famous for being the birthplace of entertainer, Peter Allen. He lived with his grandfather, who was the "Tenterfield Saddler" in his song.

 This is the second park that we visited to see the trees. As you can see it was a beautiful day and above average temperature. 25°C/77°F

There were some girls taking photos too.

 They didn't mind ud taking photos of them playing in the leaves

 I just loved the colours.

 Many of the streets in Tenterfield look like this. We never see this in Brisbane.

I like the old country houses hiding behind the beautiful trees.

  5. Autumn is my favorite season as I love when the trees turn these beautiful colors, Diane. I saw this often in NY, and here in Colorado we see beautiful golden and orange aspen trees in the fall.

  9. Good memories for me of VERY old times in that area.
    The Tenterfield "winds" of winter I sure remember, but it is
    such a fine pastoral area - excellent Hereford, Angus and now Wagyu
    cattle for beef.
    The sheep - the food breeds - are prominent there and the table lamb is one of the best in Australia.
    I suspect the 4 young Asian ladies may be students from the Uni of New
    England, Armidale - which does specialise in various agriculture
    subjects.
    Great report and photos,Diane.

  11. Being in a valley where the cold air sits at times must help the trees colour, although it is supposed to be more about light than temperature. Very nice photos of an iconic town.

  13. The liquid ambers always give a great show of colour if cold enough in the autumn.

  25. Beautiful Fall Color! For those of us not lucky enough to have visited your country, this really brings home that you are like us in the US -- a huge country with many different climates ..... (One of the things I know from books, but seeing your pictures and thinking of you traveling from sub-tropical Brisbane to this lovely area and thinking about how we would do that in the Fall from here in Florida to (maybe) Vermont -- it brings the understanding to life!).
