Glenreagh is a very small town encounted when traveling the Grafton to Coffs Harbour back road. Glenreagh is a valley town that has most real essential services. Glenreagh services a rich agricultural community.

It is on the North Coast Rail Line, completed to Glenreagh in 1915. A picturesque branch was opened from Glenreagh to Dorrigo in 1924, but was difficult to maintain due to the steep terrain and high rainfall and it was closed in 1972 after a washaway. The Glenreagh to Ulong section is proposed for reopening as a heritage tourist railway by the Glenreagh Mountain Railway

The Glenreagh Timber Festival is held yearly in July. It features wood cutting events, market stalls, Glenreagh Mountain Railway mini-museum, and children's attractions.
