Tenterfield Station is an outstanding example of a significant historic rural complex with a high degree of original fabric. The station includes an 1890s homestead and a group of rural station buildings, including barns, a blacksmith and butcher shop, and an iconic water tank stand. Its social and historical significance is of undeniable importance in its association with Sir Robert Ramsay Mackenzie who went on to become the first colonial Treasurer of Queensland, and Sir Stuart Alexander Donaldson the first premier of NSW in 1856. Tenterfield Station Homestead was also the wedding reception venue of Australia’s favourite poet, Banjo Patterson, who married local girl Alice Walker in 1903.
