At around 1000 metres above sea level, New England’s High Country offers visitors a truly evocative and unique experience with four distinct seasons. The city of Armidale and the towns of Guyra, Uralla and Walcha share a rich history and stunning natural environment. Where else can you experience World Heritage wilderness in the morning and indulge in the sophistication of world-class galleries and vineyards in the afternoon?

Armidale is one of the few towns in Australia to offer a free guided heritage tour of the town's attractions. The two hour guided tour includes stops at the New England Regional Art Museum, the Railway Museum, Aboriginal Cultural Centre & Keeping Place and the University of New England.
