The thrill ofhigh country

At around 1000 metres above sea level, Armidale offers visitors a truly evocative and unique experience.

The city of Armidale and the town and villages of Guyra, Wollomombi and Ebor share a rich history and stunning natural environment. Where else can you experience World Heritage wilderness in the morning and indulge in the sophistication of world-class galleries and vineyards in the afternoon?

This is all part of the experience in the Armidale region – there are hundreds of thousands of hectares of national parks and state forests to explore.

Spacial Riesling @ Little Welders Dog

Jul 25 2024

Armidale musicians, Pat Harris (bass, guitar, vocals and loops) and Dave van Tongeren (drums and percussion) use rhythmic layering to create improvised abstracts where feeling and colour are the name of the game.
