Mehi Murri Art Studio

Mehi Murri was formed by a group of Aboriginal (Murri) students from the Moree TAFE Campus in the town of Moree in Kamilaroi (Gamilaroi) country.

The founders of Mehi Murri wanted to set up an environment where Aboriginal students could study their culture and express it through art and craft, and provide an essential opportunity for you to meet with, interact, and hear the Murri's share their stories of their life.

At the Mehi Murri Art Studio you are free to watch students as they paint. They are happy to talk with you about their designs, their style of art and what has inspired the designs they are creating.

Art works can be purchased directly from the artist giving you the opportunity to have the artist tell you the story behind the piece and enable you to take home something you now have a personal understanding of.

Mary Brand Park

Situated on the banks of the Mehi River and representing great significance to Moree's history is Mary Brand Park named after Moree's first store-keeper and hotelier, Mary Brand. Featuring a traditional four-room slab hut 'Meei Cottage', Mary Brand Park offers a spectacular opportunity to relax under the shady canopies of century-old fig trees whilst enjoying the various bird and wildlife that inhabit the surrounding parklands.

A must for photographers and an ideal picnic area; the park backs on to the Mehi River jetty where it is popular for fishing and water sports.

The park commemorates Mary Brand's return to Moree after the death of her first husband, James Brand. Mary built her second store in Moree on this site. She also founded the town's first Hotel, the Moree Inn in 1861.

Rocket Park

The original rocket was built in Kirkby Park in 1972 to commemorate the Centenary of Education. It was built with money left over from the Centenary of Education Ball held as part of the celebrations. It is believed it was a suggestion of June Mckinnon that something be built for the children of Moree to play on, she was right on the money, many children played and enjoyed it for many years before occupational health and safety took over. The much loved rocket was deemed to be unsuitable and was closed.

Today, the giant colourful model has been rebuilt, standing 14.9 metres tall and costing AUD220,000. The rocket was launched on 11 July 2009 by astronomer in charge Dr Fred Watson.

Moree Lands Office Historical Building

The Moree Lands Office is an example of a two-storey timber office building, designed by the colonial architect, Walter Liberty Vernon. One notable employee was Edward Bulwer Lytton Dickens, son of Charles Dickens, who worked in the Lands Office from 1900 to 1902.

The building is constructed of timber and corrugated iron and originally contained eight rooms with a central corridor. The design only contained the front and rear veranda. An additional veranda was contracted, connecting the two existing verandas after the building was raised in height in 1902 to 1903. It is likely the reason for the raising of the building was to protect valuable records from floodwaters.

The building was almost destroyed by fire on 21st January 1980. The building is significant as an outstanding example of a timber building design for making a strong contribution to the historic Frome Street streetscape with other heritage significant buildings.
