Glen Innes is the home of the Ngoorabul people, with Ngoorabul country extending from the escarpment west to Ashford and north to Tenterfield. Glen Innes Severn is the Local Government Area and is branded Glen Innes Highlands (GIH) – Where adventure meets nature, culture and history.  The GIH area sits at the crossroads of the New England and Gwydir Highways in the north of the New England Region of NSW. GIH is easily accessed from Southern Queensland, the North Coast of NSW and the surrounding New England – North West Region. Around 4.87 million people reside within half a day’s drive of GIH.

Straddling the Great Dividing Range, GIH has a stunning physical environment. Our landscapes are varied, with dissected gorge country, waterfalls and rainforest gullies along its eastern edge. The remainder of the district is elevated plateau, dominated by ‘granite country’ with spectacular granite outcrops, tors and balancing rocks. 26% of GIH is National Park estate2 (1,190km2) and State Forests (231km2), including the World Heritage listed Washpool and Gibraltar Range National Parks.

GIH has cool temperate climate with four distinct seasons. GIH attracts the ‘snow chasers’ in winter, people escaping the humidity on the coast in summer, and visitors seeking the spectacular displays of spring blossoms and autumn colours.
