If you're in Tenterfield you absolutely must stop in and check out the history at the Tenterfield Saddler. So much history in one place, and where better to find a little souvenir for friends and family????

The gentleman there was very informative. I read the words to the song (as above) and he explained the meaning which I never knew, even though I have heard the song before.For me being there pulled at the heart strings a little.Very nostalgic.

Just a gold donation to visit this little piece of Australian history. We had been visiting the various museums all morning and this just added to the Tenterfield learning experience. It's not large but I really enjoyed the visit.
