Ideally positioned to maximise business returns

Moree is located in north-west NSW, approximately one hour south of the Queensland border. It has three major highways in the region: Gwydir Highway, Carnarvon Highway and Newell Highway. Newell Highway is extensively used as the travelling route for the transport industry as well as for a thriving tourism trade that is seen everyday on this trail.

As the main transport link from Victoria through Western NSW into Queensland, the Newell Highway is one of the most critical transport roads in the state. This key freight route runs through the spine of country NSW and the completion of the Moree Bypass will make a huge difference to local communities, local and interstate motorists, and the road freight industry.

The Newell Highway bypass has removed trucks from Moreeā€™s commercial area in Frome Street, significantly increasing safety for local residents and promotes the efficient movement of freight on the Newell Highway south of the town.

This change to the road network places Moree Gateway in a strategic location to showcase the town on the Newell Highway and create a new commercial hub for both the region and visitors.
