Glen Innes Severn Council (map); Glenn Innes is a town and local government area located at 1,062 m in the beautiful New England Tablelands (population circa 6,200). The area is renowned for its distinct seasons and is commonly referred too as 'Celtic Country'. The first settlers, who arrived in 1838, were predominantly of Scottish origin; today the town is the site of Australia's only official monument to the nation's Celtic pioneers (the Standing Stones). When tin was discovered at Emmaville in 1872, Glen Innes became the centre of a mining bonanza. It is a prolific sapphire region and also produces emeralds, garnets, topaz and quartz crystals.
