New South Wales Adventure - Armidale

We today we ventured about Armidale on foot. We started at the markets having a look see at what they had at the farmers market. A few marketers so not much to see today really.

Off we walked around town to see the historical sights. Lots of old buildings from the early days.
 In Armidale 100 years ago you had a choice of 21 Hotels!! Today there are 9. Sorry beer lovers.

The original Bank of NSW

 These guys had a 4 displays of miniature figurines- really cool
