Moree Things to Do

  • PARKS & PLAYGROUNDS

    Moree has hot summers and cold winters, so it is nice to find many lush, lawned parks. We stopped at Mary Brand Park, mainly because it was easy to park with a Caravan, but also as it had toilets and was located on the banks of the Mehi River. On the opposite river bank is Max Wales Memorial Park, named for Moree's son who lost his life at the...

  • MOREE PLAINS GALLERY

    I'm glad I didn't miss this building, as in my opinion, it is the nicest in Moree. It is not an Art Deco building, but a building built in Edwardian style in 1910 for the CBC Bank & Managers's residence.Since 1988, it has been a gallery showcasing a permanent collection, and changing exhibitions, many of contemporary Australian artists, especially...

  • ART DECO BUILDINGS

    Moree is a Town full of Art Deco buildings. There is a guided walk that can be done, cost is $12, that takes you around the 14 heritage listed buildings, or you can just walk the main street and surrounding streets like I did.The Art Deco dates back to between 1920 and 1939. In Moree, there were many different styles combining modern art designs as...

  • LOVELY HOME

    As I was walking along Frome Street, I came across this lovely old home on the corner of Frome & Albert Streets.It caught my attention as it was built in a very different style to the Art Deco buildings in Moree.It was empty, and starting to fall into disrepair, a shame I thought. I hope somebody renovates it, and I wish I knew something about it.

    more
  • FLOOD MARKER

    The flood marker is quite easy to walk past. Located in front of the Post office on a large rock, is a marker showing the level the water came to in a "once in 100year flood." The problem is, somebody forgot to put on the marker, the year of this flood, a very important piece of missed information.I since have read, that Moree has been subject to...

  • FROME STREET BUILDINGS

    It was worth walking along Frome street, as along here, I found more historic buildings.These included the Police Station, Court House, Westpac Bank and Post Office.I took photos of the Court house which was built in Federation free style in 1903.It's a great example of Federation Free style architecture and also of a large country courthouse.It...

  • MOREE TAFE BUILDING

    Moree is town full of art deco buildings. The Moree Tafe building is one of them.It was originally the Moree Council Chambers, built in 1902, sadly not much is left of this building. After WWII it became the services club, then in 1969, a TAFE college.The building is single storey, and has fifteen bays facing Frome Street and six bays facing Heber...

  • Dr. Magill's I presume

    Though the sign today says Moree Club, for 20 years from 1900 this was the surgery and hospital for a certain Doctor Magill. It's a unique example of Federation style Arts and Crafts architecture with a paint scheme to highlight the design.There's intricate timber detailing here and the gables that face Albert Street have incorporated some of this,...

    more
  • Federation weatherboard

    These three shops with residence attached are one of the few buildings to survive the great floods of 1910.Some of the fronts are original and are over 100 years old.This is one of 14 points listed in a town walk brochure called "Moree's Heritage Trail" that you can obtain from most accommodation houses or the Tourist Information Centre.

  • The Waa Gorge experience

    Just 86.1 kilometres from the tourist office in Moree, you'll find this gem. Of course, that titbit of information casually circumvents the fact that you'll also have half a dozen gate opening and closures, a couple of tricky creek crossings and a lot of the road is dirt. Then again, more than half of Australia's roads are dirt.Scene 2 shows you...

  • Classic Aussie pub

    This is the sort of place those yobbos who fancy a beer might well end up at. Typical two storey with spacious verandahs for those who might be staying a night or two in the budget accommodation that can prove handy for the traveller who fancies a tipple.It's located on the eastern side of town where the road heads out to the Gwydir Highway.

  • On a clear day

    It was warm, well, hot really. The only thing that tempered the heat was that it was a dry heat, typical of the country. Away from the beaches there's a distinct lack of humidity, which is just as well, because 40 degrees is not comfortable.Just outside of town, on the southern side, an emu and its young chick wandered restlessly through a newly...

    We travelled to Moree by plane, but you can also travel by car and also train.

    QANTAS Link services Moree. The trip up includes a stop at Narrabri where passengers from there to Sydney borad the aircraft. Fifteen minutes later we were on the ground in Moree. All up around 2 hours from Sydney. The trip back to Sydney was quicker because it didn't require a stop in Narrabri.

    Now for the funny little story! Michelle, one of my colleagues & a terrific lady is a tad worried about flying in these smaller planes (I'm not overly fussed on the idea either actually!!!) so wasn't too pleased when I pointed out to her that the Pilot & co-Pilot were doing a "high-tech" (said he with tongue in cheek!) inspection of one of the engines up a ladder with a torch. It was after dark. My guess, which turned out to be correct, was that mayber a bird had been sucked into the air intake. After a 40 minute delay we finally got into the air, a bit the worse for wear & somewhat apprehensive (the master of understatement strikes yet again! lol!). Obviously we survived the trip because I'm writing this tip!

    When Vicki rang home, one of her sons told her that anything within some metres gets sucked into the air intake of a plane's engine. Also one of local business owner has a sister who owns a travel business & when he told her I was going to Moree she said I should fly as the planes are often hel up or grounded because of birds getting sucked into the air intake!

    This is quite an upmarket shop designed for those with a bit of cash (or credit card) to spare. Unfortunately we three didn't have a lot of either to spare so it was only a relatively quick browse for us with thoughts of what we might like to purchase on another trip with more time and moeny to spare! Sigh!!!

    What to buy: It has an excellent range of boomerangs, didgeroos, fabrics, prints, ceramics, carved items, weavings, authentic aboriginal crafts & accessories, tapes & CDs & books.

    While much of the merchandise is from other parts of Australia, you will find trhat some boomerangs, didgeridoos & ceramics are locally sourced if you might like a genuine local aboriginal souvenir to take home. Next trip there that's what I'll be looking at, within the affordable range.

    What to pay: From a little to a lot. Quite a lot for the top ticket items. Having said that there quite good value items to be purchased. And the other thing to consider is that time & love put into the production. Mind you, I still have concerns as to how much the middleperson (& retailer) gets as opposed to the original artist/producer.

Moree Warnings and Dangers

  • by Buddy1001 Written Sep 25, 2013

    We were there for one night, and on that one night our vehicle was broken into and two friends tents were slashed into, with iphones, cameras and walky-talkies stolen. If you're going there and you have to, stay in a motel or hotel.

    Tackle available

    by aussiedoug Written Apr 16, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now I'm not the fisherman I could have been seeing I was a good one as a young lad (see my Stages of Life 1 album on my homepage for my big fishing catch as a youngster). However when we saw an interesting banner fluttering overhead the Newell Highway (aka Frome St, Moree) about the Easter Carp fishing competition sponsored by Hong Yuen I did a little bit of research.

    Apparently Moree & the area around is considered to be the fishing centre of the Gwyder Delta as well as being situated on the Mehi river which will apparently give up Golden Perch & Murray Cod (which seems to be hard to get down around Corowa on the mighty Murray) if you're a half decent fisherperson. Apparently the Gwyder river proper has both of these two fish species & also Silver Bream & Eel-tail Catfish. All of these fish are supposed to be good eating. And as all good fisherpeople know, if you've caught it yourself & it's that fresh then nothing tastes better!

    Equipment: You could bring all the necessary gear with you & we did notice a couple of cars in town with the appropriate gear on the roof & in the back.

    If you need anything you didn't bring or need any new gear then drop into Hong Yuen's shop in 126 Heber streeet, Moree. IThe experts there are available for sales of tackle & bait & will be very helpful with appropriate advice. I've scanned some info to go with this tip. You'll need to click on it to enlarge it if you are at all interested. If not, just move on dear reader.

    Emus in the wild

    Favorite thing: Moree has no shortage of wildlife, driving through these parts, there is always the chance of seeing many kangaroos and emus. Especially during the time when there hasn't been much rain in the region.
    So always take care on the roads.. as these guys aren't known for having too much road sense.
