Localities listed here may be up to 50kms in distance from Glen Innes.

Regarded as the centre of gemstone gravel mining and a popular starting point for gemstone hunters and fossickers.

Most of the Glen Innes district fossicking sites that contain alluvial sapphires also produce zircon and quartz. Topaz is also frequently found at numerous sites.
