Glen Innes – The Celtic Stones

Mar 4  The Australian Standing Stones at Glen Innes began as an ambitious project by a small but dedicated group of local citizens who wanted to mark Glen Innes’ Celtic Heritage. It was in Australia’s 1988 Bicentenary Year that the Celtic Council of Australia developed the idea of erecting a national monument to honour all Celtic peoples who helped pioneer Australia. Glen Innes responded with a 46-page submission for Australian Standing Stones, inspired by the Ring of Brodgar in Scotland’s Orkneys.
