Description

A small Granite boulder area 10 kilometers east of Tamworth. The granite here varies in quality, with ongoing development from locals. Beware the Tiger Pear that grows prolifically in this area, it is a pain to remove.

Access issues

Both the TSR (Tintin's) and Porky's are public land but please don't cross fence lines into private property, as temping as some of those boulders look.

Approach

From Tamworth head north on the New england/oxley highway for approximately 10 kilometres till you reach Tintinhull road. Turn left and continue on tintinhull road for another 4 kilometres till you reach the intersection of porcupine land and Tintinhull road. For Tintin's continue on 30 metres and the gate to the TSR (Tintin's) is on your right. For Porky's turn right into porcupine lane and head up about 1 kilometre to the top of the cutting. You will see where the old road used to go over the hill on the right, this is Porky's.

Ethic

Please keep the gate closed to the TSR (tintin's) cattle on the road is no fun. While we welcome the additions of new routes and projects only ask that contact is made to our group so we may keep things updated (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1442121059411786/) Please ensure you take all your rubbish with you. We as a group are making a conscious effort to clean up this area to ensure future use for everyone.
