Australia is renowned for its high quality of life and spectacular geographic landscapes. The country has been inhabited by indigenous Australians for thousands of years and was discovered by Europeans in 1606, when Dutch navigator Willem Janszoon spotted it and made landfall. Today’s population is about 22.6 million, and more than 85 percent of residents live within 31 miles of Australia’s coast, which stretches more than 31,000 miles and is linked by 10,000 beaches – more than in any other country in the world. Australians are characterized by their love of the outdoors, their dry sense of humor, and their notions of a “fair go,” a down-under term that means reasonable and equitable behavior.

Expect the spectacular in Celtic Country. Glen Innes encompasses a breathtaking array of attractions, experiences, festivals, events and endowment of natural wonders—from World Heritage national parks to some of the world’s richest gem and mineral fields.

Glen Innes is the Celtic capital of Australia, and celebrates this with the annual Australian Celtic Festival, held at the unique Australian Standing Stones. If the Standing Stones have immense appeal for visitors, so too, do Celtic Country’s distinctive seasons which are unlike so much of the rest of Australia: naturally air-conditioned summers, log-fire winters with occasional snow, golden autumns, and dazzling springs. The temperature here in summer is a minimum 12.5°C (54°F), and a maximum 26°C (78°F); While in winter, it ranges from 1°C to 13.5°C (34°F to 56°F).

Scot Archibald Boyd was the district’s first settler. He was guided by bearded stockmen William Chandler and John Duval, both celebrated in the Land of the Beardies Festival and Land of the Beardies History House. The town was gazetted in 1852.

With a population of approximately 8,793 (2006 census) Glen Innes sits strategically at the intersection of New England and Gwydir Highways.

Glen Innes is the highest large town in Australia at 1,072 metres above sea level in Glen Innes, with nearby hills rising to 1,500 metres at Ben Lomond and in the Deepwater district. See more at

Cape Byron is Australia’s most easterly point, 153° 39´ east, located on the north coast of New South Wales Australia. With its numerous beaches, unspoiled hinterland, and relaxed lifestyle, Byron Bay is a popular tourist destination.

With average summer temperatures of 21°C - 28°C (70°F - 82°F), and average winter temperatures of 15°C-21°C (59°F-70°F), both locals and visitors are able to enjoy plenty of outdoor activities including the many festivals throughout the year.

Byron Shire has a population of close to 30,000, while the town of Byron Bay has a population of about 9,000. Byron Bay is located just off the Pacific Highway, 800 kms north of Sydney, 175 kms south of Brisbane. Airports are located in Ballina (30 minutes south) or Coolangatta (60 minutes north), and busses and trains arrive regularly.

Byron’s beaches are like a dream come true, which sounds like a cliché until you experience them. If Australia does one thing really well, it has to be the beaches, and Byron’s are among the best in Australia. Stretching between the headlands of the northern New South Wales coast, many are sheltered from the southerlies and offer great surf breaks. Clean and undeveloped, the beaches are not overcrowded with highrises, or in fact with buildings of any sort.
