Epicentre of the black soil plains which produce prime beef and fine wool and bumper wheat and cotton crops, Moree is 650km north-west of Sydney in the New England
region. Despite its importance to the regional and state agricultural economies, Moree is best known for its renowned thermal spa baths which have been a Mecca for the infirm for more than 100 years. Arthritis and rheumatitis sufferers are the most frequent visitors. The mineral rich waters are pumped from deep in the sub-structure to the spa bathing areas in an Anne Street complex which includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool. There are several pleasant picnic spots on the banks of the Mehi River, and the Barry Roberts Walk follows the river past several heritage sites and through a pocket of bush. The Moree Plains Gallery, which features regular exhibitions also maintains a permanent collection of Contemporary Aboriginal Art and Artefacts from Kamilaroi tribal region.
