About Moree & Narrabri

The rich, alluvial, black soils of the Gwydir Valley are home to the Moree Plains. This wide-open expanse of Country NSW proudly boasts the largest pecan farm in the southern hemisphere, olive groves, a high-quality beef-cattle industry, numerous cotton farms and cereal crops, such as wheat, barley, chickpeas and oats. Guided tours are available to certain farms at specific times of the year.

This area is rich in natural attractions. Explore the Rocky Creek Glacial Area or perhaps the ancient Aboriginal carvings at Berrigal Creek. Picnic or fish on the river banks of the Barwon, MacIntyre, Gwydir or Mehi rivers.

East of Narrabri, Mount Kaputar National Park features the spectacular Waa Gorge and the bizarre columnar basalt cliff face, Sawn Rocks. Visit Pilliga Forest, the largest remaining area of native forest west of the Great Divide.

The towns and villages of the area have an array of attractions to offer. Discover the arts, food and wine, fishing, birdwatching and local heritage.

Other highlights include Berrygill Creek, Myall Creek, Cranky Rock Reserve, and the towns of Boomi and Mungindi.

This area makes a great holiday base, too, as there are plenty of accommodation options.
