The mineral-rich artesian waters that flow through Moree are renowned for their therapeutic qualities, and are guaranteed to rejuvenate even the weariest of travellers!
The healing benefits of Moree’s artesian waters are well-known, so we’ve rounded up the best ways to enjoy this natural attraction – and ensure maximum relaxation levels are achieved, of course.
1. Visit Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre
Having recently undergone a 7 million dollar revamp, the Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre is a world-class facility that caters for the whole family. There’s plenty of opportunity to bathe in the artesian waters, with a multitude of outdoor pools (covered and non-covered) that are heated luxuriously to 38-41 degrees.
Kids will enjoy the waterslide, and there’s also a gym and café onsite. Get a taste of the luxurious European spa culture, right here in north-west NSW!
2. Indulge in a private bath at Moree Artesian Wellness Centre
Tucked away inside the Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre - in a strictly kids' free zone – is a little slice of luxury: the Moree Artesian Wellness Centre. Bypass the crowds in the public bathing area and treat yourself to your own private bath filled to the brim with 38-degree artesian water.
A range of spa treatments, massages and a private sauna are also on offer in the Wellness Centre, should you feel inclined to continue pampering yourself. Bliss!
3. Enjoy a stay at the top-notch Moree Artesian Spa Motel
There are accommodation options to suit even the fussiest of travellers at Moree Artesian Spa Motel, a comfortable, well-equipped motel just a short walk from town. With a range of lodgings including compact rooms, studio apartments, river view king rooms with a veranda, or family rooms, it’s safe to say there’s not much the Moree Artesian Spa Motel is missing.
Did we also mention it is one of the few accommodation providers with access to the artesian springs? With your pick of two pools, you’ll be reaping the benefits of the restorative artesian water in no time.
