Tenterfield Post Office NSW

Tenterfield is 715 km north-east of Sydney and 275 km south of Brisbane. It sees itself as the "Birthplace of the Nation" as Henry Parkes chose this spot to deliver his federation speech of 1889, which led to the unification of Australia as a nation in 1901.

The Post Office, built in 1881, is a two-storey Victorian Classical building with a metal roof, arched colonnades and clock tower.
