This is in our friend's front garden

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.

Amazing old tree
Oct. 2020 • Couples
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.

Largest cork tree in Aus

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

That's one big tree
Jun. 2020 • Couples
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.

A must-see in Tenterfield, a very old Cork-tree, still standing proudly, looking great and amazing tourists. Bought out from England, as a seed, in a jar and still standing - Wonderful

Incredible to see
Jul. 2019
Yes it just a tree but it’s incredible. Brought from England around 1861. It’s massive. It’s hidden down a side street all along but I recommend you check it out.
