Visit Glen Innes Highlands this Winter

A visit to Glen Innes Highlands truly allows you to experience four distinct seasons. The last of the autumn leaves are now falling and we're preparing to embrace the cooler climate upon us. Experiencing winter high up on the tablelands is a truly heart-warming experience. Think cosy fireplaces, warm country hospitality, big starry night skies and crisp misty mornings. Cooler temperatures also make for the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and explore during the days. Or if a slower pace is more to your liking, discover local galleries and creative spaces, markets, homey cafés and restaurants.
