BUBBLING hot natural springs, long countryside lunches, Aboriginal arts and vast cotton fields are among the idyllic vistas which feature in a new content package designed to showcase the beauty of the Moree district, Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall announced today.
Mr Marshall said the stunning series of videos and images, produced by the NSW Government, focused on the array of authentic experiences on offer in and around Moree.
“Initiatives like this are crucial for growing tourism in our region,” Mr Marshall said.
“This is about promoting the best of the bush to the world.
“There’s so much to see and do in Moree, whether that’s relaxing in the town’s iconic mineral springs, relishing a long lunch in the countryside, appreciating the local art or meet your producers with a tour at a local pecan farm.
“No matter your age, background or interests, the rich diversity of our region means there is something for everybody to enjoy.”
The initiative was started earlier this year, when Mr Marshall was the State’s Tourism Minister, and he’s delighted with the final result.
“These images and videos are magnificent and show the Moree district at its very best,” he said.
“I know Tourism Moree will use this new content to promote the district far and wide and attract even more tourists and their dollars into the region.”
Key attractions and experiences featured in the new Moree content package include:
- Moree on a Plate – This annual ‘festival of flavour’ showcases the abundance of food and wine produced in Moree and the surrounding region. It features food and wine stalls, celebrity cooking classes and a Gala Event, which includes a Long Lunch.
