About Glen Innes
Glen Innes is at the heart of Country NSW, set amidst rolling countryside in the picturesque New England Tablelands. A highlight is the Australian Standing Stones, a circle of giant granite monoliths that are the official national monument to Australia's Celtic pioneers. Step out on the town's Heritage Walk and discover more than 30 heritage-listed buildings.
Scour through sapphire-bearing gravel at the Wee Brek Fossicking Park and the surrounding area or recapture the romance of the past at nearby Deepwater and Emmaville villages. The stunning rainforest wilderness of Washpool National Park is just 78km east of the town.
