Armidale is the type of place advertising executives can only hope to create in their latest spot. Heritage buildings? Check. Rushing waterfalls? You’d better believe it.
This New South Wales destination is a university town, but it’s not just university students who fall under its spell. Wine lovers, outdoor trekkers and anyone with an affinity for the words “boutique” and “charming” are also pretty big fans of the place. Get car hire in Armidale and you can explore every nook and cranny.
After you wake up at one of the best Armidale hotels, fill up on some good brekkie and head straight for the University of New England. Beautiful brick architecture is all over, and in the autumn months, falling orange leaves provide colourful ground cover.
After your dose of academia, take your Armidale car rental 25km east to the Gara Gorge Lookout. Deep ravines and rock-lined creeks are staples of the landscape here. Leave your phone in the car and your worries somewhere else—it’s time to play adventurer. You’re practically Indiana Jones.
You want to push the meaning of “Off the Grid” on this holiday. Good thing you booked that Armidale car hire (recreating Wild is pretty overrated). Pack the car and point your compass west. In just 80km, Cathedral Rock National park awaits.
If you always excelled at obstacle courses as an ankle-biter, the giant pile of boulders here may be of interest. Climb it like it’s the Iron Throne and take your rightful place. Then take a lovely walk through the park’s eucalypt forest.
