ARMIDALE, Thursday.  

The first meeting of the recently gazetted
trustees of an area of more than 42,000 acres
between the tableland and the coast, was held
at Armidale. Bylaws were adopted, and the
area named the New England National Park.
The area embraces Point Lookout, regarded
as affording one of the finest panoramic views  
in the world. The park is 25 miles from Bel-
lingen, 48 from Armidale, 10 from Dorrigo,
30 from Macksville, 40 from Kempsey, and
55 from Grafton. Steps are being taken to
develop the area, and to provide means of ac-
cess to it.
