Moree Lifestyle

Situated on the banks of the meandering Mehi River, surrounded by shimmering, startlingly flat horizons and dazzling night skies, Moree is a dynamic and historic town, rich in cultural heritage, natural assets and agricultural bounty. With a thriving arts scene and sporting, recreational and special events calendar, Moree is well known for its welcoming, social, and resilient community.

The area overlies the Great Artesian Basin and has access to extensive underground water resources, first tapped in 1895, earning the town its status as the Spa Capital of Australia. The mineral-rich waters rise to the surface in hot natural springs and bores and are a major tourist attraction and great asset to the district.

Moree has a surprisingly wide variety of dining options for its size, including fresh and modern pub grub, cafes with caffeine hits worthy of the fussiest coffee addict (including early opening) and menus featuring an abundance of local and seasonal produce, plus, Thai, Indian and Chinese cuisine. If fast food takes your liking, it's available 24/7.

Key attractions

The award winning Moree Visitor Information Centre is the ideal place to discover the town and surrounds with many self-guided brochure options to get you started, including motoring tours, CBD Art Trails and wonderful Heritage and Art Deco Walks highlighting historic sites and examples of Moree’s unique architecture.

You can visit one of NSWs largest collection of Aboriginal family records, plus an extensive array of traditional Kamilaroi artefacts, art and photographs – a wonderful space to learn about Gamilaroi culture at the Dhiiyann Aboriginal Centre.

The Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre is a modern facility that draws bathers from all over Australia and the world to experience the reputed healing properties of the mineral rich artesian waters, pumped from the depths and naturally heated to 41°C.

Moree loves its team sport and every night of the week and all weekend there are comps happening, including hockey, rugby league and union, indoor and outdoor netball, cricket, touch football, AFL and tennis. The town features sealed shared walking and bike paths, including through the Moree Botanical Gardens.
