Tenterfield was an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of New South Wales, originally created in 1859, partly replacing New England and Macleay, and named after, and including, Tenterfield. In 1920, with the introduction of proportional representation, it was absorbed into Northern Tablelands, along with Armidale and Gough. It was recreated in 1927 and abolished in 1981 and partly replaced by the recreated Northern Tablelands.[1]
