Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Moree 26 – 27 September 2014

We were not expecting much from Moree, as we had heard many stories of the racial problems and thought it would be like Walgett, but we were pleasantly surprised to find a prosperous town, with a pleasant and leafy shopping centre and some beautiful houses. Moree is one of the richest agricultural regions in Australia and relies on a complex system of irrigated fields to sustain their wealth. While there is still a high crime rate, the locals are very proud of their town and say the council has done a great job in bringing everybody together. We decided to stay at a caravan park in Moree as they had their own thermal pools and we enjoyed a number swims in the pools, which ranged in temperature between 29 and 39o – beautiful!
