Abstract: The approach used in this paper is to treat of what is and has been generally understood by the term 'New England', and then to consider the particular (oral) cultural 'flavour' to the region which is more specifically centred on Armidale and which may be defined as the southern half of the Northern Tablelands New South Wales, in eastern Australia. ... New England is an extensive but undefined area in northern New South Wales. Some would include within its boundaries the North-west slopes and the North Coast from the mouth of the River Hunter to the Queensland border. This larger zone was often the common perception of New England in colonial days and at various periods from 1856, when in Armidale there began the agitation for a separate state.
