The Glen Innes District is renowned for its strange and unique rock formations.
One of the most unusual is the Balancing Rock, 12 kilometres south of Glen Innes on the New England Highway. The gigantic boulder of granite rests precariously on a 300 millimetre point amongst other rock formations.
Balancing Rock is on private property and is about 150 metres from the highway. To view the rock simply stop at the rest area which is marked with a Balancing Rock sign.
When travelling north from Guyra on the New England Highway start looking right when approximately 15 kilometres from Glen Innes.
When travelling south, start looking to your left half a kilometre from Stonehenge Recreational Reserve. There are some beautiful rock formations at the back of the reserve. Travellers can picnic, camp or just wander around these magnificent granite rocks in the recreational reserve.Visit Website
