Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Expected to see this HUGE tree in a parkland. Instead is just on a block in-between houses. It is well worth a look, and does have a sign. Amazed it's still standing.

Definitely worth a visit close to the centre of town. A spectacular tree which was brought from England in 1851 but is still flourishes today surviving many storms. We were told it has never been corked.

It is a big old tree. I walked from the information office through some of the back streets. There are some beautiful old homes in Tenterfield. Nice reward for an early morning stroll.

It is a sight to behold, but we drove past and didn't see much need to get out of the car. I wouldn't visit Tenterfield just to look at the tree, but if you are stretching the legs, it's not too far from the main street.

A magnificent HUGE cork tree, not many left in the country, if you are there at the right time of the year you might even find a nut / seed from it to plant in your own back garden, they look like an acorn. Just 2 minutes off Rouse the main street.

We enjoyed seeing this very old cork tree in the streets of Tenterfield. It could be improved with some seating provided as it was a hot day and we had walked to see the tree. It could also be improved with more information on the sign so we would learn a bit more - overall worth a look though

Never seen a cork tree before - fascinating. Pity some people had cut off bits to take with them - no respect for nature.

Feel the bark and enjoy this tree planted in 1961 but please don’t cut bits off. Fittingly it’s on Wood St.

The historic cork tree is on the town's outskirts but very easy to visit for a five- minute gawk. It is a massive, apparently the largest cork tree in Australia and grown from a seed brought from England in 1861. One thing I had never realised is that cork trees are actually a type of oak. There were acorns scattered around the ground and it took a while for the penny to drop before I realised where they'd come from.
