Arts, Culture and Dining

 

The Moree Gallery

The Moree Gallery has been established for over 30 years and has four exhibitions each year not only bringing the talent of established and successful artists to Northern New South Wales, but also showing off the work of new and emerging artists as they launch their careers. Amongst the works represented at the Gallery are the impasto impressionism images of Amanda Brooks and Kendall Perkins, the highly considered works of Peter Schuster, the powerful works on paper of Jill Wilson and works by Christine Porter, Larissa Blake and Jacqueline Coates.  The gallery is an eclectic showcase of works straddling a wide range of styles and genres.

Aboriginal Culture

​The Indigenous population is approximately, 17% of the Moree Shire.  The majority of the Aboriginal people live in Moree, Mungindi, Toomelah and Boggabilla.  The Aboriginal villages are at Mehi Crescent and Stanley Village in Moree, and at Toomelah ten kilometres outside of Boggabilla.  The very significant cultural site of Boobera Lagoon is located in the northern part of the Shire near Boggabilla. The Mehi Gallery and the Yaama Ganu Gallery and Café Gali feature authentic Aboriginal work from artists of the local Kamilaroi Nation and Aboriginal managed Art Centres from communities around Australia.
