Standing Stones - Glen Innes


The Australian Standing Stones located in Glen Innes was an ambitious Bicentenial Project in 1988 to honour the Celtic forbears of many Australians, it was finally completed in 1992. The stones all came from the Glen Innes area with most weighing over 17 tonnes. To read more about this amazing project and it's symbolic nature click here.

It is great place to visit with views over the town and an excellent cafe in a replica crofters cottage. It is especially eerie to visit when it's foggy; in Glen Innes that can be quite often!

  3. I agree that it looks great but eerie when foggy. Even if it was completed in 1992, the Australian Standing Stones still stands.

  4. Oh yes they would be marvellous in mist. Glen Innes is a freezing spot ... I see they had horrible low temperatures last week.
