Glen Innes

The Glen Innes Highlands is packed full of adventure and experiences with distinctive seasons, gourmet foods along with its picaresque town and villages. Great for road touring, kayaking and canoeing, mountain biking, fishing for the mighty Murray Cod or meandering along its historic colonial main street or museums. This agricultural town has a proud Celtic Heritage and is home to the Australian Standing Stones – the National monument erected to honour all the Celtic pioneers of Australia – hosting the Australian Celtic Festival in May each year. The World Heritage Washpool and Gibraltar Range National Parks, Stone Henge and the Minerama Fossicking Gem & Jewellery Show are just a few of the other great attractions on offer.
