Sydney to Moree Explorer train at Moree station

Brisbane or Gold Coast to Moree to soak in the artesian spa baths

Moree is famous for its artesian spa baths and well worth a visit. If you’ve not yet visited these baths just be warned they’re very addictive. Visit once and I guarantee you’ll be planning your next visit before you say goodbye to Moree and head back home.

The good thing about visiting Moree for the baths by train or coach is that the Moree Railway station and coach stop is more or less across the road from the Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre. Furthermore, there are numerous small motels close by the Aquatic Centre, all within walking distance.

One of the first sights you’ll see when you arrive is people in their swimsuits ducking across the street between their motel rooms and the aquatic centre. There’s also the Victoria Hotel across from the baths that has accommodation and serve excellent meals. Other popular motels close to the baths are the popular Maria Motel and the Molika Springs Motel both of which we’ve stayed at and can recommend. If you’re looking for a chain motel the Econo Lodge Moree Spa Motor is a little further up the road – 350 m from the hot baths and a 3-minute walk from the railway station and coach stop.

There are also numerous cafes and restaurants close by. If you want Coles or Woolworths, it’s a ten to fifteen-minute walk into town. Or call Moree Taxis on (02) 6752 2753
