The other major centre in New England is Armidale, located about 110kms from Tamworth. Armidale is a stylish city and is the location for the highly respected New England University.
The New England area has many national parks, reserves and spectacular World Heritage areas, many of them offering camping facilities, bushwalking and many other outdoor recreational activities. With warm to hot summers, and cooler winters, this region is also known as the 'Big Sky' country because of its open space and sweeping panoramic views.

"I have met many new people, which has been one of the most exciting aspects of studying at TAFE NSW. I also found Australian students, teachers and staff to be very friendly. My teachers gave me invaluable support and without them, I would not have been able to complete my course. There are lots of interesting study options and the facilities are extremely great. For students who intend to progress further into university, I cannot stress enough the importance of completing a Diploma at TAFE, which guarantees you entry to a university here in Australia. I am planning to do further study at TAFE NSW."Andriana Bongran from Vanuatu - Business Administration
