"MOREE - HOME OF ARTESIAN SPAS" Moree by balhannah

Moree Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 50 photos

Time for another stop and a look around Town.

When travelling in these areas, there aren't many towns.

When we left Goondiwindi, we quickly came to Bogabilla where mostly Aboriginals live, and then it was a drive of 125kms to reach our next town which was Moree.

MOREE is located in the heart of NSW’s northern wheatbelt and recognised nationally as Australia’s Artesian Spa Capital.

Moree has an Art Deco town centre, specialty boutiques, many cafes and restaurants, a regional art gallery, and pecans, olives, wines and other produce grown in this area.
A guided tour of the largest pecan nut farm in the Southern Hemisphere is available.,

Want to relax? Then try the therapeutic hot Artesian Spas or a pampering massage in one of the luxurious salons, day spas, and alternate therapy centres. The benefits of natural Artesian mineral waters were discovered thousands of years ago, and have been used for their curative powers since ancient times.

The Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre is where you can go and soak in mineral-rich artesian water which will make you feel revitalized straight away.
The Aquatic centre has an Olympic pool, two Hot Artesian Pools which are both naturally heated to temperatures between 38 - 40 degrees Celsius, and another pool.
The Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre usually closes the last week in July for cleaning.

March to May - Cotton picking, cotton ginning
April to August - Olives, pecan nuts

Most of the work is carried out in the summer, which can be extremely hot. Cotton chipping entails standing for long periods in the open, exposed to the sun.

2012 - Our next stop on the road trip along the Newell Highway from Moree, is at NARRABRI.

2014 - This time we will be travelling on the Kamilaroi Highway from Moree as we are heading into the Outback of Australia and to the lovely small town of BREWARRINA where we will spend night 2.

Pros and Cons

    Nice page, Dee. A great look at town and area which seems to be blessed with good land for farming -- hope they get the rain they need.

      Yes, it is. A land of droughts and flooding rains makes farming in Australia quite a challenge, more so now with climate change. Thanks for visiting!

    You certainly got to see a lay of the land -you cottonpickers-a USA slang.

      Yes! We have seen cotton growing, being harvested and being taken to the wharves. As this is one of Australia's major highways that we often use, we get to see the changing seasons

    Very nice Art Deco buildings in Moore! It absolutely looks worth a stop when you are passing by.
