My Australian Journey 2022: #10 Tenterfield New South Wales and Approach to Cunningham’s Gap, Queensland

As we passed through New South Wales to the border with Queensland, we stopped off at Tenterfield, known as the ‘birthplace of Australian Democracy’. Sir Henry Parkes signed the all-important document, and is commemorated in the museum named after him here in this town.

I love the area of the New England Highway which becomes the Cunningham Highway, as we drive through the plain heading for the mountain range ahead: the Great Dividing Range. As we drive up through Cunningham’s Gap we glimpse a glorious panorama: and at one point we begin to hear the exquisite sound of the bellbirds.

It’s curious how there are certain places on this earth we can associate with distinct feelings: and the vision of driving through a great plain towards the mountains, always stays with me.
