Fishing & Birds
Moree is renowned for excellent fishing opportunities with 2 of the major waterways within 25 minutes of town. Moree also has several fishing competitions held round the year, contact our friendly staff at Tourism Moree for dates & venues of competitions in the area. 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 inand around Moree. If crustaceans are more your style, throw in a Yabbie trap and hope to catch some sweet, succulent yabbies for tea!
As a hub of the Gwydir Delta waterways, Moree Plains is renowned for excellent fishing opportunities. And with two of the major waterways within 25 minutes of town, fishing is an easily accessible, relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a day...or weekend!
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.
Several fishing competitions are held year-round with the Moree Visitor Information Centre able to advise on dates & locations.
