Getting Armidale accommodation for a week-long holiday or just a simple weekend getaway is exciting. There are nearby sites around where you can go and explore. However, if you have kids with you, you may be left trying to think of places they will find fun and enjoyable. We got that covered with this list of activities that will interest the kids – and the kids at heart!

  • Visit some parks

Armidale is not short on nature-friendly spots. In fact, the Armidale Bicentennial Arboretum is just 7 minutes’ drive away from Club Motel Armidale. Children can enjoy the place, which has an abundance of native plants, along with walking pathways, picnic spots, and aquatic gardens.

Also, if you have the luxury of time, you can visit the Cathedral Rock National Park – it is seriously worth the one hour drive from your Armidale motel! This park is perfect for kids who love walking, camping, and birdwatching. You can also do some rock climbing and hike to get a more scenic view of the environment.

Another eco-park near Armidale is the Oxley Wild Rivers, National Park. Take a relaxing walk with the kids and try a little fishing while being surrounded by an amazing rainforest and waterfalls!

  • Go cycling

New England Bike Tours are located at 5/85 Marsh Street, just a few steps away from your Club Motel Armidale accommodation. They offer guided biking tours around the town. With them, you can get adventurous and hit the trails in the mountain bike parks or you can settle for a low-impact tour around the area – it all depends on you! You can also suggest particular places go to and they can customise the trip. If you feel you can handle the cycling alone with the family, you can just rent the bikes from them and go along at your own pace.

  • Explore the waterfalls

You will never regret your stay in Armidale because the place is surrounded by waterfalls, most are within a 30-minute to 1-hour car drive. Kids (and adults alike) who are fascinated with nature, especially bodies of water, will totally appreciate the breathtaking view of the falls. Some that you can explore are the Wollomombi Falls, Ebor Falls, and the Waterfall Way. These spots also have picnic and camping areas.

  • Learn something new – go to museums!

If you think your kids will have fun while discovering new things through art and history, then the museum is the perfect place to go!

An 8-minute walk from Club Motel Armidale is the Armidale Folk Museum. This is one of the city’s major local attractions. It is 84 years strong and it stands proudly with all the history and artefacts it has kept throughout the years.
