I know that I'm biased about Armidale. It's not just that I grew up there. It's really a great place.
Neil Whitfield, a fellow blogger, alerted me to Chris Walker-Bush's Aussie on the Road blog. It's quite a fun blog, but that's not the point of this post. Chris did Theatre Studies at UNE. His The Country Charms of Armidale records his liking of the place.
From my experience, he underestimates both parties and adventure! But it's still a nice picture.
