“What’s so appealing about Armidale is that it’s a cosmopolitan and sophisticated urban centre located in a picturesque rural setting on the doorstep of some of the most scenic national parks in Australia.”
Our expansive and picturesque NEGS campus is situated in the New England city of Armidale, which has long been recognised as a significant centre of education with its university (UNE), excellent independent schools and TAFE.
But as a regional centre, Armidale offers so much more – scenic beauty, rich history, stately architecture, a vibrant food and wine scene, boutique shopping and World-Heritage National Parks at its doorstep.
Situated half-way between Brisbane and Sydney in the scenic New England High Country, our city offers a base to explore the dramatic gorges and waterfalls of our nearby National Parks. Our city is also home to the highly regarded New England Regional Art Museum (NERAM) and New England Conservatory of Music (NECOM) which contribute to the thriving arts and culture scene in the city.
Set around 1000 metres above sea level, Armidale experiences a cooler climate and is known for its distinct seasons – the summers are mild, autumn is spectacular, winter is crisp and in spring the city is ablaze with colour. It also has excellent transport links with several flights to Sydney each day as well as coach services and a NSW CountryLink service to Sydney.
