Glen Innes and Severn Shire - Cities, Towns and Localities
An easy four hours drive from Brisbane, 2 hours from Grafton and 7 hours from Sydney, on the intersection of the New England and Gwydir Highways, Glen Innes is located in rolling countryside on the Northern Tablelands. At about 1,062 metres above sea-level, the town and region offers plenty for the visitor with distinctive seasons that has seen occasional snow.

Steeped in history, the town of Glen Innes and the Severn Shire is known as “Celtic Country”, site of the unique Australian Standing Stones and venue of the Australian Celtic Festival. Glenn Innes was named after a Archibald Clunes Innes, a scotsman from Thrumster, Caithness-shire.

For more information about Celtic Country, click here. Also on display at the Cooramah Aboriginal Cultural Centre is the history and culture of the Aboriginal people.

Other attraction for the visitor include fossicking for the semi precious stones, the region being the prolific sapphire region in New South Wales, although you can also find other semi-precious stones such as emeralds, garnets, topaz and quartz crystals.

If you are into fishing, the area also offers some of the best Murray cod fishing in Australia, as well as some great trout waters and other fish species.

Standing Stones - Glen Innes

For those into other experiences you can discover the real Australia through the great “pub crawl on horseback”, touring with the ghosts of pioneers on the Glen Innes-Grafton World Heritage Way, as well as communing with nature through the number of bush walks and parks. There is of course some fine gallery display of local artists, sports facilities, cafes and restaurants.
