Museums and galleries around Glen Innes
The first European settlers in this area were mostly Scots. Today, in the colonial-style towns and villages around Glen Innes you can still see many museums and heritage buildings reflecting this past.
Take a stroll through the Glen Innes town centre on a heritage walk past 30 heritage-listed buildings.
Visit the site of the Australian Standing Stones, a megalithic stone circle built by locals as a monument to the area's Scottish settlers - in April and May each year there's a lively Australian Celtic Festival.
Be sure to visit the Henry Parkes Memorial School of Arts in Tenterfield, one of the finest small museums in Australia, and explore the pretty rural villages of nearby Deepwater, Emmaville and Torrington.
