The autumnal colours of Glen Innes Highlands see the region cloaked in vibrant hues of yellow and red, with poplar trees lining many of our roads and driveways, making for picturesque scenes throughout our town and villages.
As a rule of thumb, the best display of colour can be experienced in the middle of April.
Autumn is also when our region comes to life with our major events, including the Minerama Fossicking Gem and Jewellery Show that takes place at the beginning of March and the Australian Celtic Festival over the first weekend of May.
Autumn average maximum 23°C and minimum 11°C.
Our chilly winter temperatures in Glen Innes Highlands are embraced and celebrated by locals and visitors alike.
It's the perfect weather to experience one of our region's farm stay cottages and snuggle up to an open fireplace with a nice glass of red.
Adventure seekers also favour the cool temperatures for daytime hikes and spectacular frosty morning landscapes within our World Heritage National Parks.
The Winter Solstice is the day of the year that has the least daylight hours of any in the year and usually occurs on 21 or 22 June. Attend the Australian Standing Stones to celebrate this ancient Celtic tradition.
Take a scenic drive through our picturesque villages or around the region to see its unique spaces and places. If you’re lucky you may even catch a dusting of snow in town or at nearby Ben Lomond, which is great fun for the whole family to experience.
Everyone loves rugging up and listening to a great story, and Glen Innes has more than a few tales to tell. Discover plenty of these stories at our museums or find your way to our many art & craft galleries and handmade workshops
Winter average maximum 14°C and minimum 2°C.
Spring in Glen Innes Highlands features a burst of vibrant new life. The World Heritage National parks come to life with fauna while native flora blooms.
Don’t miss our very own Gibraltar Waratah flower during these months, or the displays of golden wattle blooming along our regions country driving routes.
Take a drive around our township’s streets for beautiful lines of spring colour on our tree-lined streets - another reason people move to Glen Innes Highlands.
The warmer days bring our more events including High Country Handmade Showcases, Oktoberfest and the annual Glen Innes Spring Showjump at our historic Showground.
