​Glen Innes

Where career and lifestyle meet

Glen Innes encompasses a breathtaking array of attractions, experiences, festivals, events and endowment of natural wonders - from World Heritage national parks to some of the world’s richest gem and mineral fields.

Set high in the Northern Tablelands of NSW, Glen Innes enjoys kind summers, so is a great place to escape the summer heat, though occasionally in winter there’s a dusting of snow and mornings can often be frosty. Within a short drive there is much to see and do in an area stretching from the Queensland border to Armidale, from the Pacific beaches to the Western Slopes.

With rainforests, waterfalls, extensive grazing country, mountains, fossicking and huge, beautiful skies, there is something around here to interest everyone in the family.

Steeped in Scottish tradition, Glen Innes is the site of Australia’s only official monument to the nation’s Celtic pioneers and venue for the hugely successful annual Australian Celtic Festival.

The Australian Standing Stones in Glen Innes in the New England tablelands of New South Wales are unique, one of the first built in the world for more than 3500 years.

Glen Innes boasts some of the best Murray cod fishing in Australia and the many streams harbour delicious trout and yellowbelly.

It is the key location to reach a stunning and diverse network of national parks and nature reserves, including the World Heritage listed Gibraltar Range and Washpool National Parks.
