The closest village to Moree is the hamlet of Ashley, a mere 18km north/north-west of Moree along the Carnarvon Highway. Surrounded by cotton and general farming, Ashley is home to two cotton gins, the Auscott "Midkin" Gin and the Namoi Cotton Gin. Auscott Pty Ltd also produces cotton, wheat, cereals and legumes on their farm.
The Ashley Community Hall, Midkin Park and Playground are a vital meeting place for the locals where the children can play and families can celebrate with a party, picnic or just enjoy a cool drink together. Located in the centre of the village, next to the Fire Station, there are also BBQ facilities available for public use.
