About Armidale

Population 25,000

Located amongst rolling hills in the New England Tablelands of the Great Dividing Range, Armidale is the main service centre for the region and has a reputation of being somewhat of a student town, with the University of New England located here.

There is plenty of shopping, services, facilities and a nice heritage precinct to explore. In autumn the town also puts on a beautiful display of foliage as the tree lined streets parade their autumnal colours.

Armidale is also the gateway to several nearby national parks; including New England, Cathedral Rock, Guy Fawkes and Oxley Wild Rivers. With their dramatic, rugged and spectacular scenery, they are great places for outdoor adventure and activities.
