Hi, Marco

Armidale is lovely historical town nestled on the New England tablelands, half way between Sydney and Brisbane and about two hours drive to the coast.

It is surrounded by World Heriage National Parks Such as the Oxley Wild Rivers N/P

New England National Park

Cathereral Rock National Park

Guy Fawkws National Park not to mention all the state forests.

It is a blend of Farmers and University students as it has a very good and large univeristy which a lot of city studnets prefer to study at.

There is approx 25,000 residents a mixture of different nationalities. The town itself has historical building and landmarks all very much attached to our rich Australian farming history.

Day trip which are interesting is to Walcha, Uralla and Guyra.

It is a very safe/ clean and interesting town.
