Feel your spirits soar in New England’s High Country, an early colonial region of great beauty.
Discover the beauty of New England’s High Country in northern NSW.
WITHOUT GETTING ON A PLANE, you can experience a place where summer nights are cool, autumn colours vibrant and winter mornings icy, sometimes even snowy. You can snuggle in front of the fire while the kids watch for snowflakes at the window, without driving further than three-and-a-half hours from Brisbane. Surprised? New England High Country in northern NSW has that effect.
The region’s capital, Armidale, is the highest city in Australia and also one of the prettiest; its stately buildings, grand homes and European tree-lined streets indicative of the wealth many early settlers found in the region.
A trip to New England can encompass a walk through Gondwanaera rainforest to vertigo-inspiring gorges and waterfalls, an interactive, family-friendly stay at a working farm and countless fantastic dining and shopping opportunities in Armidale, as well as its smaller, more quaint towns of Tenterfield, Glen Innes,
Uralla, Guyra and Walcha.
