A few more towns in NSW,

After our sleep which was always a good one we were up early heading further north in NSW.
We couldn't find a place to park to take photos in Moree,. nor did we visit the artesian hot springs due to the need to get to our next stop for the night.

Moree is a major town which we passed through.
Moree is a major agricultural centre, noted for its part in the Australian cotton-growing industry which was established there in the early 1960s. The first cotton plant in Moree was from a farm called Wilga. It was grown by Bill and Betty Lynch.

The town is located at the junction of the Newell Highway and Gwydir Highway and can be reached by daily train and air services from Sydney. It is situated in the Shire of Moree Plains. Like many towns and cities in Australia, Moree shares its name with a much smaller community in Northern Ireland in County Tyrone. At the 2011 census, Moree had a population of 9,346, which was an increase from 8,083 in 2006.
Moree is home to artesian hot spring baths which are famous for their reputed healing qualities.

This Hotel is at Boggabilla in NSW, it's called the Wobbly Boot!
This Pub is not that far north of Moree.

  6. Moree looks nice. Th hotel would look so much better if the ugly verandah enclosure on the second storey was removed.

    1. Mostly we drive past Moree except for this last time, took a good look around with the caravan on behind, pity there was no where to park in the main area - but maybe another time we go up that way.
      Part of the verandah could certainly be removed. The pub was for sale before we went on holiday - don't know if it's been sold as yet.
