Armidale Stud


Armidale Stud has a long-standing history of breeding and raising elite racehorses with a record that spans over more than 50 years.

Our team are thoroughbred professionals dedicated to providing industry-leading care, so you can rest easy knowing that your horse is in experienced hands while at Armidale.

The farm is set up with safe infrastructure explicitly tailored to meet the needs of thoroughbreds and stock numbers are limited to ensure that horses thrive in their surroundings.

Tasmania’s temperate climate provides the perfect growing conditions for thoroughbreds of all ages. Our consistent rainfall, coupled with expert farm management, means that horses at Armidale grow and develop on lush, nutrient-rich pasture all year round.

Armidale’s large, expansive paddocks allow horses to move freely, helping them to build natural muscle and bone that will aid in their future racetrack careers.

Travelling to Tasmania


Thanks to The Spirit of Tasmania, transporting your horse to Tasmania is more accessible than ever.

It crosses the Bass Strait nightly, with the double sailing day voyage taking 9 hours and single sailing days taking 11 hours. 

Armidale Stud is a short 45 minute trip from the Devonport Port and there are numerous horse transport providers based in Tasmania.

We recommend using A1 Horse Transport or Tasmanian Horse Transport for your travel requirements to and from Tasmania.
