Tenterden

Tenterden is a small town around 328 kms south-east of Perth and about 10 kms south of Cranbrook. The town is set some 1 km to the east of the Great Southern Highway and is situated on the Albany railway. The rail siding opened here in 1891 and the town was gazetted two years later. Tenderden is named after a town of the same name in Kent, England, as is Cranbrook. The area boasts prime agricultural land and offers views of the nearby Stirling Range
