The Moree Regional Botanical Gardens are gardens with a difference. Rather than being in one park-like location, this evolving garden lines the southern bank of the meandering Mehi River close to "Whiddon", Moree's aged care facility and the Moree District Hospital. Visitors can ramble along the banks of the Mehi on this leafy walk towards the Moree Visitor Information Centre.. a tarred footpath starts in the Lyle Houlahan Park at the Moree Visitor Information Centre.
While in the park, take a moment to appreciated the vibrant mural inspired by the work of local Indigenous Elder and Artist, Margaret Adams, adorns the wall of the Old Visitor Centre further to the east.
As you proceed along the path, taking in the fresh air, the path will take you all the way through to the next section of the Moree Botanic Gardens, which is located on the Corner of Heber & Morton Streets.
The Moree Regional Botanical Gardens will ultimately feature extensive mature local vegetation and traditional Carved Trees of the Kamilaroi people. Carved Trees are of particular significance to the local Indigenous people being both a record of their history and the embodiment of the Kamilaroi soul. In honour of the contribution of Indigenous Elder, Jim Stanley, the Jim Stanley Walk has been established as part of the gardens.
