Heart of New England

The Armidale region boasts spectacular world-heritage national parks, cool-climate vineyards and a fascinating and diverse cultural heritage.

Armidale, the town that is the heart of New England, hosts a range of museums and galleries within walking proximity to each other such as the University of New England museums, the Armidale Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place, and the New England Regional Art Museum.

From Armidale, travel 35 minutes to Uralla and McCrossin’s Mill Museum.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
