Attractions & Activities in Armidale
When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
Food makes the world go around! My local tip for visitors to the New England region is a visit to the Goldfish Bowl. It’s an organic wood-fired bakery in Armidale that serves up the best Portuguese custard tarts, and is also a specialty coffee roastery. A must try are their delicious pizzas for lunch on Fridays, and is also a showcase for the region’s best seasonal organic produce.

Whether you love nature or art, or are looking for things to do in Armidale with the whole family, there are lots of attractions and events on throughout the year.
Among the top Armidale attractions is the Wollomombi Falls. Travel just 30 minutes in the car and you’ll be transported to another world. Home to the highest waterfall in New South Wales and spectacular views of the New England region, it’s a great place to take the family.
If you’re looking for more waterfalls and spectacular scenery, then drive along the scenic Waterfall Way, with the route beginning just minutes from the hotel. Along the way, you’ll be able to visit the Cathedral Rock National Park and Ebor Falls. There, you can enjoy walking, hiking, fishing, camping and more with friends or family.
There are plenty of Armidale events on your doorstep as well. The New England Regional Art Museum is a short distance from the hotel and regularly hosts art exhibitions and events showcasing Australian and international artists. We’re also near the Armidale Folk Museum, Armidale Central Shopping Centre and under 5 kilometres from the University of New England.
