Glen Innes Visitor Information Centre
The team at the Glen Innes Visitor Information Centre can help you with ideas on what to see and do during your visit, whether it's only a couple of hours, half a day, a day, or simply a stop-over. The friendly team can assist you with booking accommodation and the centre is well-stocked with local maps and brochures, Celtic souvenirs, and regional produce.
Glen Innes Highlands welcomes you to experience and enjoy its four distinct seasons, picturesque town and villages, spectacular landscapes and world heritage national parks, and many great places to stay during your visit. There are also many options when it comes to great places to eat, drink and shop.
Some popular activities around the region include road touring, kayaking & canoeing, mountain biking, fishing for the mighty Murray Cod, fossicking for sapphires, meandering along the historic colonial main street, and exploring the museums in Glen Innes and Emmaville.
Learn about and explore the town's proud Celtic heritage by visiting the Australian Standing Stones - the National monument erected to honour all the Celtic pioneers of Australia, which also hosts the Australian Celtic Festival in May each year.
