Wander in the footsteps of poet great Banjo Paterson and his bride when the gates of historic Tenterfield Station Homestead are thrown open as part of Easter's Autumn Festival, and the morning tea and tour is now free thanks to sponsorship.

The Tenterfield branch of NSW Farmers received a grant from the NSW Department of Primary Industries' Drought Resilience Fund to cover the price of admission.

The refreshments and tours will be happening between 9.30am and 12 noon on Easter Monday, April 5 to showcase the amazing property, with a live music accompaniment.

While the $20 fee is now waived (and those who have already purchased tickets will be refunded), all visitors must hold tickets for COVID-safe purposes.

Tenterfield Station Homestead was home to the first premier of NSW and was frequently visited by Banjo Paterson as he courted and eventually married Alice Walker, the daughter of WH Walker who managed Tenterfield Station.

The landmark property recently received a grant to start some rectification works so people can come along for the journey to see these changes as they unfold.

The free tickets are available at Sherelle Fashions in Tenterfield or online at https://www.trybooking.com/BOECP.
