Caravan parks near Armidale guide

Overview

If you're hitting the road in your caravan, Armidale makes a strategic starting point at the gateway to New England's High Country. Spend a few days in town to admire the art galleries and heritage buildings, enjoy wine tasting at cool-climate vineyards, and hike to canyons, waterfalls, and rainforest gorges. Then, head north along the New England Highway to Bald Rock National Park or follow the Waterfall Way to Cunnawarra National Park, New England National Park, and Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, all part of the UNESCO-listed Gondwana Rainforests Heritage Area. Most of the region's parks have unpowered caravan and motorhome campsites with basic facilities like picnic benches and BBQs, but some sites are only suitable for small campervans or trailers. For powered sites and extra amenities, check in to a caravan park or tourist park, or opt for a private Hipcamp on a local farm.
