Tips for First-Time Travellers to Armidale

Hire a 4WD

You can get by with a 2WD, but having access to a 4WD will allow you to explore even more of what the New England region has to offer. You’ll come across several unsealed roads in the national parks near Armidale, and having a 4WD means you won’t have to miss out on the landmarks located down those routes.

Consider visiting in autumn

Autumn is a favourite among both locals and travellers. You’ll get to enjoy New England at its finest by booking Melbourne to Armidale flights in autumn – the entire region comes alive with gorgeous golden and red tones as the foliage changes.

Plan a visit to the Armidale Markets

The Armidale Markets are held on the last Sunday of each month. They’re the perfect spot to immerse yourself in the local lifestyle. Browse more than 50 stalls selling a wide variety of items – clothing and accessories, art and handmade crafts, and plenty of great food.

Landmarks and Monuments You Can’t Miss

Wollomombi Falls

Wollomombi is one of the several beautiful waterfalls you can see while holidaying on flights from Melbourne to Armidale, NSW. Wollomombi is one of Australia’s largest waterfalls and the highest in NSW, standing tall at 220 metres (722 feet). You’ll get a good view of Wollomombi Falls by hiking the four kilometre (2.5 mile) Wollomombi Walking Track. It leads to several viewpoints of the Falls, crosses the Wollomombi River, and also takes hikers past the smaller Chandler Waterfall nearby.

Saumarez Homestead

The Saumarez Homestead has been a place of significance in Armidale since the 1830s. The land was once a British settlement, and it became the site of an impressive Edwardian-style mansion in the late 19th century. Visitors can tour the 30-room mansion, which has been restored over the years and still features furnishings from the period when it was built. The exterior of the Saumarez Homestead is just as impressive as the inside – there’s a series of beautifully-designed gardens that you can wander around while holidaying on Melbourne to Armidale flights.

Armidale Folk Museum

You can take a step back in time to the early days of Armidale by paying a visit to the Folk Museum. The museum has been around since 1933 and is one of the oldest regional museums across Australia. The museum is set up inside the historic Armidale Literary Institute building and features a range of exhibits that tell the story of Armidale through the years. Learn about what life was like in the early days of European settlement, see an impressive collection of gems and minerals, and the impact the World Wars had on the people of Armidale.
