Top Experiences for Visitors
Spend a day in New England National Park
Of the several national parks you can visit while travelling from Adelaide to Armidale, New England National Park may be the best. It’s located in the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales and is home to an impressive gondwana rainforest. There are a handful of walking trails that wind through New England National Park, taking visitors through the rainforest and leading to impressive viewpoints. Can’t-miss walks and landmarks include the 2.2 kilometre (1.4 mile) Eagles Nest circuit, Wrights Lookout, Tea Tree Falls, and Weeping Rock.
Boolominbah is a historic mansion that you can tour while visiting Armidale. It’s located on the University of New England campus but is open to anyone visiting the area. Booloombinbah was built in the 1880s following the Federation Arts and Crafts style of architecture. It began as a private residence, went on to become the first official building of the University of New England, and is now on the NSW State Heritage Register. Part of the mansion is still used by the university, but visitors are able to peak into some of the impressive ground floor rooms.
Drive Waterfall Way
Spend a day exploring Waterfall Way to see more of the New England region while holidaying on flights from Adelaide to Armidale. The scenic road stretches for 185 kilometres (115 miles) between Armidale and Coffs Harbour. There are dozens of attractions to see along the way, including national parks and – you guessed it – waterfalls. Plan in some side trips to national parks like Dorrigo National Park and Cathedral Rock National Park. Waterfalls to visit along the way include Wollomombi Falls, Ebor Falls, and Dangar Falls. New England National Park isn’t too far from Waterfall Way, so you can even combine the two attractions into one day trip.
Armidale and New England have four distinct seasons, so the clothes you should pack depend on the time of year you’ll be travelling from Adelaide to Armidale. Summer gets hot, so you’ll want lightweight clothing like shorts, t-shirts, sundresses, and sandals. Pack an umbrella too as summer gets more rain than other seasons. The autumn and spring shoulder seasons often experience warm weather during the day and cold temperatures at night. Come prepared with clothes you can layer – jeans, t-shirts, jumpers or cardigans, a jacket, and a pair of shorts if you’ll be visiting in the months close to summer. Bring along plenty of warm clothes if you book winter flights from Adelaide to Armidale – a warm coat, hat, scarf, gloves, warm pants, thick jumpers, and a pair of boots that will hold up if it snows.
Alongside those staples and your normal toiletries, bring along sunscreen, even in the winter. A pair of sturdy hiking shoes also comes in handy since there are a handful of national parks within reach of Armidale.
