The Glen Innes District is renowned for its unique rock formations, one of the most unusual is 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. It is not accessible to the public, but can be viewed from the rest area which is marked with a Balancing Rock sign.
Though Balancing Rock is on private property, just next door there are many interesting rock formations at the Stonehenge Recreational Reserve. Here travellers can picnic or just wander around the magnificent granite rocks.
Travelling north from Guyra on the New England Highway start looking right when approximately 15 kilometres from Glen Innes.
Travelling south, start looking to your left half a kilometre from Stonehenge Recreational Reserve.
