Partner opportunities in Glen Innes

According to Glen Innes Highlands, the town is ideal for tree-changers, telecommuters, semi-retirees and active retirees, boutique/specialist agricultural producers, artisans and manufacturers, and creative professionals such as architects and designers.

According to a recent survey, our tree changers over the last ten years have been across all age groups with just under half under the age of 44, almost 60 per cent married with children and almost 54 per cent with a Graduate or Bachelor degree. Why did they move here? Family, climate, work, community, business, country living, health, business opportunity and affordability were some of the main reasons according to our survey.

The region’s major industry specialisations include agriculture, forestry and fishing, health care and social assistance cohort, retail trade, followed by accommodation and food services and education and training.
