Moree

A place of relaxation and rejuvenation, Moree is in the beautiful Gwydir Valley in northwest NSW. Soak in hot artesian springs, sourced naturally from deep inside the Great Artesian Basin, and discover the therapeutic benefits of the mineral-rich waters.

Thousands of visitors flock to the Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre each year to enjoy the soothing thermal springs, which are naturally heated at 41 degrees Celsius. The centre also has a day spa, sauna and gym, and offers massages and other revitalising treatments.

Other things to do and see in and around Moree include fishing in the Gwydir delta waterways, joining a heritage and agricultural tour, and exploring fine art in the Bank Art Museum Moree. The gallery’s indigenous art collection is one of the most significant in Regional NSW.

The main streets are lined with beautiful heritage buildings, best explored on the guided Moree Heritage and Art Deco Walk, which departs from the Moree Visitor Information Centre. A pretty riverside picnic spot is Mary Brand Park, named after Moree’s first store-keeper and hotelier.
