About Moree and Narrabri

This beautiful landscape of ancient volcanoes, eucalypt forests, alluvial plains and meandering waterways is Australia’s natural thermal spa capital. The artesian mineral waters are heated naturally deep below the surface and are prized for their revitalising and therapeutic properties.

The most famous restorative waters are at the Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre in Moree, a charming town in northwest NSW. The delightful town of Narrabri is scenic drive south along the Newell Highway and near many natural attractions, including the spectacular Mount Kaputar National Park.
