MOREE: An aboriginal word meaning Long Water Hole (note that some historians seem to think that it means Rising Sun though evidence to support this is not strong)
Moree is in the centre of Australia's richest agricultural region with grain, cotton, sheep and cattle being the prime products. Many trips around the region will give the visitor access to the cross section of agriculture that is to be found.
The town is also famous for its Hot Spa Baths, said to have many healing powers. People travel from all over the world to enjoy the theraputic benefits of the hot springs.
Whilst in the town, there are many places of interest to see. Look at an early settlers cottage in Mary Brand Park. See the Court House, and the Lands Department building in Frome Street. The Moree Plains Gallery occupies another heritage building, the former CBC Bank and is well worth the vist for its variety of exhibitions. Also in Frome St is the Moree Club, another of the many heritage buildings to be found. At the Amaroo Tavern in South Moree you can climb aboard the big plane and experience what it was like for those who traveled in such aircraft. Photographs of these attractions are to be found in the Photo Gallery.
While in town, take the time to visit the Moree Plains Gallery. The effort will be truly worth it.
There are many tourist drives centered on Moree. One of the popular ones, because of its variety of scenery, is the trip towards and along the border. Travel towards Boggabilla then travel west to Boomi and Mungindi. From there you travel back on the Carnarvon Highway, via Weemalah (just off the main road), Garah and Ashley.
