Fishing & Birds

FISHING

Moree is renowned for excellent fishing opportunities with 2 of the major waterways within 25 minutes of town. European Carp Musters are an annual event at many of the towns in the Moree Shire. This effective measure is proving to be very beneficial to our native fish species and the environment of our waterways.

Snag a Golden Perch or maybe a Murray Cod, Silver Bream, Red Fin or an Eel-tailed Catfish in the brilliantly productive waters in and around Moree. If crustaceans are more your style, throw in a Yabbie trap and hope to catch some sweet, succulent yabbies for tea!

For bait, rods, reels and local tips on where to find the perfect spot to throw in a line, visit one of the outdoors and fishing shops located in town.

NOTE: NSW Fishing Regulations do apply to licensing, bag limits and fish sizes.

BIRDS

Moree Plains Shire offers avid ornithologists a chance to view a colourful and interesting array of seasonal & migratory birds. Brilliantly coloured parrots decorate the landscape and can be found almost anywhere in the Moree Plains Shire. Lagoons and irrigation channels give rise to many species of waterfowl with the occasional Brolga or Black-necked Stork being seen in the area.

Tourism Moree can provide a pamphlet regarding local listings of over 180 Birds of Moree & District (compiled by local bird watching group), and also a Map of Moree Bird Routes entitled The Wetlands Loop, Watercourse and Gingham Roads (compiled by DEHW).

Travellers to Boomi district will be able to trek the Boomi Walking Trails. Emus and Red-tailed Black Cockatoos are just two species of bird that you may encounter whilst in Boomi. Bush tucker and bush medicinal plants may also be identified when treking the Boomi Walking Trails. Brochures for this walk are available at the Boomi Community Co-operative Ltd., Boomi Street Boomi.
