C. B. Newling Centre - Old Teachers' College, Armidale

AU / New South Wales
Listed By: Create NSW
Location ID: #073-16485
Formerly the Armidale Teachers' College, this building housed the first college built outside the Sydney metropolitan area to train country teachers for country service. Built in 1928 in the Interwar Georgian Revival Style, the building includes a commanding entrance, with a main staircase leading to the first floor and auditorium, as well as the use of local Australian timbers, terrazzo steps and parquetry floors. The building is also surrounded by a significant early 1930s landscape that is a rare and surprisingly intact representation of institutional gardening from that period. Featuring a mature parkland with pines, elms and poplars, sheltering rose gardens and other beds that are planted annually, the garden provides a magnificent setting for the Centre.
