Midway between Sydney and Brisbane on the inland route, Armidale in the New England region is an attractive city at any time of the year. But it is at its best in the fall when the Celebration of Autumn takes place against a backdrop of gold and amber-draped trees.

The city is rich in heritage and culture and the New England Regional Art Museum contains more than 3500 works, including the important Hinton and Coventry collections. You can walk the city’s Heritage Trail or board the electric Heritage Trolley, which makes daily, 2 hour tours of the city's hot spots. The Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place is a treasure house of artefacts and displays which transport the visitor back to the Dreaming.

Armidale is also at the doorstep of World Heritage-listed reserves, including the spectacularly rugged Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, home to the acrobatic brush-tailed rock wallaby.

Armidale is a provincial city of great educational and architectural significance. The civic fabric includes majestic cathedrals, churches, public buildings and grand old homes such as Booloominbah, which was one of several buildings designed by Canadian architect Horbury Hunt. Booloombinah is now the main administrative office of the University of New England. The university and the nearby CSIRO complex at Chiswick are world leaders in animal genetics.
