Glen Innes

Departing Washpool after my four nights camping I rejoin the Gywdir highway to Glen Innes. Along the way I turn off to Raspberry Lookout which offers impressive views of various national parks nearby.

Not too long after I pull in to Glen Innes for 2 nights. This town is rich in 1900’s architecture all along the main street. It’s impressive to think 100 years worth of different shops have called these buildings home. They certainly knew how to build a building to last back then. This only takes an hour to walk.
There was also a very large history museum in town that was recommended to me but it was closed on the saturday afternoon.

Due to the Celtic history of the population, there is The Australian Standing Stones, which is like a Stonehenge monument up on the hill overlooking the town. It’s interesting enough to take a look at despite the rain. Onwards to Tamworth.
