Tenambit’s quiet residential streets and close proximity to local amenities make it an ideal suburb for families and older couples. The area is largely made up of family homes of three or more bedrooms.
The suburb’s small shopping village is located on Maize Street, offering a supermarket, butcher, bakery, pharmacy, newsagency/post office, cafe and takeaway options.
Schooling options in the area include early education at Kindy Patch and primary education at Tenambit Public School. High school students can matriculate to nearby Maitland High School in East Maitland. Steiner education is available at Linuwel School.
Both Maitland city centre and the refurbished Stockland Green Hills are just five kilometres from Tenambit. The suburb is also close to the home of the new Maitland Hospital at Metford, expected to be completed by 2024.
