Walking piece details
Just 20km south of the border, Tenterfield is a clear-sky town at the very tip of New South Wales. Rimmed by national parks and large granite outcrops, this is a town built on crossroads;
between the coast and the western plains, traditional aboriginal tribal lands, states lines, time zones and railway gauges. The Tenterfield soundtrail is a geo locative audio walk that carries us up the creek and down the main street of town, and into the history, the hearts and minds of the locals. Hear stories of the ghosts in the jailhouse, the playful patter of what it means to be a local, talking cats, German brass bands and Peter Allen’s manna from heaven. This is a celebration of Tenterfield – the town, its history and people. Beautiful sounds and stories produced by world-class radio producers … with some help from the kids of St Joseph’s school.
