Many locals are keeping traditional crafts alive that date back to the area’s pioneering days – saddlers, blacksmiths and farriers. A visit to Glen Innes is a chance to watch them at work or attend a workshop to learn new skills.
If you are here when the markets are on, you will not be disappointed. Our talented local artisans offer only the best, top-quality handcrafted products. You are sure to find something you love, for a gift or to spoil yourself.
