Moree Plains Shire Council

The Shire of Moree Plains, located in northwest New South Wales near the border of Queensland, is one of the largest Local Government areas within New South Wales. Moree is 640km from Sydney and 480km from Brisbane. The Shire covers approximately 18,000km2. The town of Moree accounts for 9,346 of the Shire’s 13,429 people (2011 Census). The townships of Boggabilla, Mungindi and Pallamallawa are the other major centres.

The landscape of the region is that of a vast flat plain that grades from the western side of the Great Dividing Range. The analogy of a river delta is often used to describe the geological surface development of the area. Under the influence of large numbers of small creeks and streams, the surface water flow links into the major waterways of the Gwydir, Macintyre, Mehi, Boomi and Barwon Rivers. The drainage basin forms a significant Catchment for the Darling River system.
