GLEN INNES

Glen Innes is a lovely little town in northern NSW on the tablelands just over the ranges from the coast. It is just over 1000 m above sea level, which gives it a nice climate in summer but it can get cold in winter.
Overlooking Glen Innes surrounded by lush grazing country. It was first settled in the mid 1800's and many of the old buildings are still used.

However, the old hospital is now a museum. It was chock-a-block full of artefacts from the early days in the country.

The Town Hall 

Originally the Commonwealth Bank but it is still used as a bank, NAB.

The Post office is a heritage building still in use. There are 50 heritage buildings in the little town.

At the end of the main street, Grey Street, the land use returns to pasture land.
A beautiful little town.

  2. Don't we have some very grand buildings in small country towns. The ovens in the hospital kitchen aren't Agas but may be very well built Australian ovens.

  4. Hi Diane, what a beautiful little town, indeed. The first image could be a town in the Northern Cape in the summer. The hospital trolley looks lethal! Have a great day. Jo

  10. What gorgeous old architecture. I am thinking it was settled by Scots to have acquired that name.

    Such a pretty spot, that museum would've been very interesting.
