The newest tourist attraction and recreation space in the region was officially opened in Glen Innes last week. The Glen Innes Highlands Skywalk will showcase Celtic and Ngarabul connections and culture.
The $2 million project is funded by the NSW Government as part of the Public Spaces Legacy Program. It includes the master concept plan to improve utilisation and attraction of the Centennial Parklands with each of the three viewing points having their own stories to tell, sharing voices from local Traditional Custodians, astronomers, geologists and historians. 
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall joined Glen Innes Severn Council Mayor Rob Banham to officially open the new attraction which brings a new level to the world-renowned Australian Standing Stones precinct. 
The Centennial Parkland Skywalk can be accessed by car via Watson’s Road, or reached on foot from the Australian Standing Stones array which stand below the lookout. 
Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Paul Scully said the NSW Government is committed to providing high quality public open space to further enhance communities like Glen Innes into places people love to live. 
“I’m sure the Glen Innes Highlands Skywalk project will be a big drawcard for tourists and the local  community alike who will come together to experience this unique attraction,” Mr Scully said.
The design, production and delivery of the Glen Innes Highlands Skywalk’s Geotourism visitor experience – an all-time first for the region – delivers 22 audio stories and 360-degree drone footage integrated into a hyper-local mapping platform which visitors can access through a QR code.
