Armidale is a city of culture and learning with a wonderful heritage area.

Armidale is surrounded by a wonderland of World Heritage listed national parks and state forests which provide endless outdoor activities.

Bird watch at the Mother of Ducks Lagoon wetlands reserve. Enjoy the tranquillity of Wollomombi Falls, one of the highest falls in Australia. Peacefully paddle a canoe along the beautiful Macleay River. For the ultimate adrenalin rush, go white-water rafting down wild mountain rivers. Ride a sure-footed mountain horse to explore glorious gorge country and then camp overnight.

The stunning Cathedral Rock National Park allows a magnificent 360 degree view. Keep an eye out for wedge-tailed eagles and photo opportunities of giant boulders and sculpted rocks. At the New England National Park, step into another world of clear water creeks, snow and mist and see awe inspiring views.

At night relax and experience Armidale’s large range of pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants. Many pubs and clubs host great live music throughout the week.
