The east coast beaches, like Coffs Harbour, can be visited for day trips. Look out too for the extraordinary Victorian octagonal woolshed at Uralla.
The university city of Armidale is a regional transport hub, with good rail and air links. The airport is two miles southwest of the centre. If you hire a car in Armidale you'll find there is plenty to see, ranging from three shopping malls to two cathedrals. Elsewhere look out for art deco and colonial-style buildings, museums, cultural centres and art galleries. And one of Armidale's highlights is the Saumarez Homestead, an elegant National Trust Victorian stately home with 30 rooms furnished in period style, plus fine gardens and all the original farm outbuildings and equipment.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
