Armidale Dumaresq: Lifestyle



Armidale offers activities for people from all walks of life. There are art galleries and museums, cinemas, theatres, many fantastic cafes, bars and restaurants and of course a strong sporting culture. Armidale is home to an 18 hole, par 72 golf course, 22 different sporting grounds and venues and numerous sporting clubs ranging from netball and rugby union all the way to ultimate frisbee and underwater hockey. Armidale is also at the centre of the Northern trout fishing region, and a 45 minute drive can have you fishing on a picturesque trout stream.

One of Armidale’s best kept secrets is that there are four national parks, each with extraordinary natural attractions, all within an hour’s drive from the city centre. There’s a monumental tumble of giant granite boulders to climb in the Cathedral Rock National Park. And, along the aptly named Waterfall Way, Ebor Falls in the Guy Fawkes River National Park is one of several majestic waterfalls to admire. Much of the extensive wilderness in the New England and Oxley Wild Rivers National Parks is World Heritage listed. Enjoy spectacular gorges, encounter dramatic waterfalls and marvel at hundreds of kilometres of pristine waterways
