History of Armatree

Armatree locality was developed in the late 1830’s when John Jude took up the Armatree run.

The existing village was established during the construction of the Railway from Gilgandra to Coonamble 1902 -1903, during this period large camps of workers engaged in this project and camped at Armatree.

The presence of the railway workers led to Armatree community infrastructure.
