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.

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.

Glen Innes Severn Council Mayor Rob Banham said the Skywalk stands as a testament to Council’s commitment to fostering a vibrant visitor economy, providing a thrilling adventure for visitors and residents alike who seek to explore the beauty, culture and history of the region.

“This attraction promises to elevate the visitor experience, offering a unique perspective of the lush surroundings and an opportunity to immerse oneself in the rich tapestry of local stories,” Cr Banham said.
