Glen Innes Tourism Centre
Tourism - Glen Innes, NSW
If you’ve ever wondered why the Glen Innes region is called Celtic Country, the answer is simple. The early settlers in the area were mostly Scots.
Expect the spectacular in Celtic Country – 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.
Glen Innes is the Celtic Capital of Australia, and celebrates this with the annual Australian Celtic Festival held at the unique Australian Standing Stones. If the Standing Stones have immense appeal for visitors, so, too, do Celtic Country’s distinctive seasons which are unlike so much of the rest of Australia: naturally air-conditioned summers, log-fire winters, with occasional snow, golden autumns, dazzling springs.
One other very special attraction is embodied in all these pages – Country : so accessible, so relaxed, so hospitable. We are justly proud of what we have to offer in our part of Big Sky Country and warmly invite you to share it with us.
