Uralla Memorial Institute

Some 22 km (14 miles) south west of Armidale is the small town of Uralla (pop. 2300). Many from its population travel to, and work in, Armidale.

A quick walk around the centre of town one Sunday afternoon gave an opportunity to view the CBD from a different perspective.

Here, for example, the ground and first floors of the Memorial Institute – a memorial to The Great War.
