University of New England, Australia

The University of New England is located in Armidale, around 600 km north of Sydney. These pictures are of the campus by the University photographer.

Autumn is a beautiful season in Armidale. There are not many places in Australia where leaves change colour in such splendour.

Snow fall is rare in Armidale. But when it does, it is spectacular too!

And here are the kangaroos!!
