Moree Plains Shire: Lifestyle



Moreeā€™s natural beauty and wide open spaces lend itself to all manner of outdoor activities such as bushwalking, camping, fishing and four wheel driving. If you prefer less active pursuits then Moree is the perfect place with a fabulous range of boutiques and cafes to spend time in. There are also many parks and picnic areas on the banks of the Mehi River. Moree has a strong cultural scene with musical events, theatrical performances and a regional art gallery.

There is also a thriving arts scene and the scenery surrounding Moree lends itself to artistic pursuits. Sports are also a large part of life in Moree with swimming pools, a golf course, tennis courts and numerous playing fields scattered throughout the town. The famous artesian baths are just perfect for resting weary muscles after a long day on the field or simply just to take a break and relax.
