Glen Innes Highlands main street, Grey street, has many heritage, grand 19th century buildings.
Our main street is a popular attraction for visitors with an interest in history, with one of the highest concentration of heritage-listed buildings in our retail & business centre and neighbouring streets.
Glen Innes Highlands are committed to restoring, maintaining and helping businesses re-purpose these building for new ventures.
The Bank Guest House is a recent example of this with the historic colours preserved on the exterior and the interior bringing elegance and comfort alongside history at every turn with soaring pressed metal ceilings, original polished wood floors and bird’s eye views over the heritage main street.
A great way to explore the main street is to simply take a walk, with the Heritage Tour app (info below) or for even more in depth information, visit the Land of the Beardies History House Museum & Research Centre.
