Moree and the Mehi Sector
Moree is located in the fertile Gwydir Valley and McIntyre River Valley in north-western NSW with a population of 15,737 residing within the Moree Plains Shire. It is a progressive dynamic community, with strong agricultural industries in cotton, grain and oilseeds and, with its Mediterranean style climate, is highly adaptable to alternative farming enterprises.
Moree Plains has long been the ancestral home of the Kamilaroi people who, as traditional custodians, are members of the second largest indigenous group in Australia. The Moree area is renowned for its cultural significance and abundance of Kamilaroi cultural items, including carved and scarred trees
Recently, the Moree Plains Council announced a $14million upgrading plan for the hot thermal baths. This exciting development will see that Moree becomes a more significant and recognised destination for people seeking to relax and rejuvenate from the stress of their lives, and enjoy the healing, recuperative powers of our artesian waters. Both residents and visitors to Moree have enjoyed this wonder of nature since 1898 with many visitors returning annually to “take the waters”. The residents enjoy a great lifestyle in a climate which allows them to take pleasure in the wide open plains and interesting places where they can fish, boat and just relax.
Moree is where you start to appreciate the vastness of this country, with the opportunity to experience outback places and people.
East of Moree sits the Gwydir region of NSW, incorporating the towns of Warialda and Bingara. The area is marketed as "Living the Gwydir Good life" and boasts a historical architectural beauty with the Roxy Theatre.
