Moree Artesian Aquatic Centre
It’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced!
- The benefits of natural artesian mineral waters were discovered thousands of years ago and have been used for their curative powers since ancient times. Many European cities are steeped in spa culture and their residents use thermal spas for their therapeutic value. Today, you don't have to go to Europe to enjoy the health benefits of nature's gift, for this can be experienced in the beautiful township of Moree. The famous Moree Hot Mineral Baths originated in 1895, when the baths mercurial waters were accidentally discovered. While searching for a reliable source of irrigation water, a bore was sunk into the Great Artesian Basin. Amazingly, this bore derived hot mineral waters, heated naturally at 41 degrees Celsius.
