New South Wales 2016

Sep 29, 2016 - at Moree

Thursday 29th Sept - at Moree No meaningful rain through the night just a few spits, but it is totally overcast and cool with a max of 17deg expected. Very slow start for us as we enjoy no itinerary to meet. We headed off to the shops for some groceries but diverted on the way to look at the DC3 wartime aircraft on display outside the Amaroo Tavern. The dilapidated state of the aircraft was appropriately matched by the state of the tavern barn we went through to gain access to the DC3. It doesn’t look at if anyone has cleaned the bar in...

Sep 28, 2016 - Quirindi - Moree via Wallabadah

Wednesday 28th First Fleet We left Quirindi and surprisingly the sun was out and we were able to have breakfast sitting outside for the first time for many days. We stopped at the First Fleet Memorial at Wallabadah. This is an excellent display of plaques bearing the names of the different ships that came out with and after the first fleet and all of the occupants on board. It lists their names and their ratings e.g. convicts or officers of different standing. It also gives where the convicts where sentenced in England and the years they...

Sep 28, 2016 - Quirindi to Moree via Manilla

Wednesday 28th Sept, - Quirindi to Moree via Manilla Great day for travel, sunny and little wind. We drove the streets of Quirindi before heading E to Wallabadah where we spent some time looking at the First Fleet Memorial. This is the only memorial in Australia where all the participants, convicts and ships company are all listed and acknowledged. At Tamworth we stopped for m/tea before heading north again. Have finally made contact with Gwydir Carapark and booked in for two nights at Moree. One of our longer drives today but do-able....

Sep 20, 2016 - St George to Moree

I crossed the border into NSW this morning at Mungindi. I came this way because there's an historical survey marker here. It's at the point where the border stops being a straight line along the 29th parallel & follows the Barwon River to the coast. It's the last of the original markers placed by Major Mitchell (the marker is still there at Cameron Corner but it's been replaced by a concrete one). Unfortunately, when I got here I found that the marker is actually 6 km from Mungindi & the last 1 1/2 km were on dirt road - there's so much...

Tardis Travels 2016

May 10, 2014 - Moree, NSW, AUS

A short, easy day today. By the time we got up the sun was already warming things up from a very chilly evening. We toured around Glen Innes then headed west on B76. We start to see more large stations, mostly cattle, some sheep. The landscape flattens out. We arrive at Inverell, take the drive through the business district and decide to stop for a walkabout. Well, for some hot chocolate and a sweet. The chocolate was disappointingly weak but the caramel sweet made up for it. Lots of colorful trees and some picturesque buildings. Continuing...

Jun 24, 2013 - Moree

23 June... Drove to Moree today. The most exciting thing about the drive (apart from the shocking conditions of the road) was our flat tire.... Lucky to have happened where I could get mostly of the road. I put the spare on till we got to Moree where I fixed the spare with the Aldi puncture repair kit. Note to remind myself next time Aldi have the 12 V car compressors on special to get one, mine did the job but it took ages to get 35PSI into the tyre... After that I rewarded myself with a soak in the Thermal pool the van park is renown for....

Sep 12, 2011 - Canberra to Moree

Left Canberra really early 6:30am which is the earliest departure for the whole of the trip so far. The reason for leaving so early is because we wanted to spend a couple of hours enjoying the artesian hot pools at Moree. We are staying at the same park that we stayed in at the beginning of our trip - Gwydir Carapark for one night. I will repeat what I said about Gwydir Carapark at the beginning of our trip - The great thing about Gwydir Carapark is that it has 5 artesian spa pools onsite. The pools vary in temperatures from 39 degrees down...

Jul 2, 2011 - Hervey Bay to Moree

We left Hervey Bay on Friday 1st July around 7am stopping around 4 hours later for lunch. We arrived at Moree around 4pm. We are staying at the Gwydir Carapark for two nights. The great thing about Gwydir Carapark is that it has 5 artesian spa pools onsite. The pools vary in temperatures from 39 degrees down to 34 degrees. The pools were very busy especially the 37 degree one were it was really packed. The pools were predominately filled with seniors in their 70s - Jim and I felt like one of the youngsters!!! One lady was telling me that...

Jun 3, 2010 - Magic Moree

Moree – town of the healing waters, reminds me of the line from Casablanca: Carol says to Trevor; what bought you to Moree Trevor? Trevor says to Carol; I came for the Waters… When I return if not before I’m going to call a special general meeting of the 1St Australian Hydrotherapy Sqn (Tuggeranong Detachment) that we should hold our future BIG Breakfasts in Moree, the waters are much warmer and the breakfasts are much bigger, 2 snags, whole tomato, ½ kg bacon, 2 eggs, toast, hash browns etc for $12. I didn’t check out the pancakes… mind...

Nov 11, 2005 - Swimming at Boonoo Boonoo National Park, on to Moree

Wake up to a campsite surrounded by wallabies and kookaburras fossicking in the early sun at Bald Rock National Park. It's a beautiful place now the torrential rain is over and we decide a swim is in order at the Nat Park next door. At Boonoo Boonoo NP we walk around 300 metres to the falls which are just beautiful. Stu takes photos and I take in the view. We find truly magic waterholes and strip off for a swim. The waterholes are so beautiful that they look like they've been planned - a series of different sized waterholes that stream into...
