Life in Armidale:

Known also as the Cathedral City, Armidale, in the Northern Tablelands of NSW is approximately half way between Sydney and Brisbane and in an elevated position 1km above sea level.

Surrounded by national parkland, it is a very liveable, family friendly town with excellent public schools, affordable house pricing and rental market, and home to the University of New England. An emerging cafe and music scene and a wide variety of clubs, pubs and community groups has contributed recently to many city dwellers making the tree change to call Armidale home.
