Moree, The RV Friendly Town


The NSW Government has issued a Public Health Order to close certain facilities from today, Thursday 26 March 2020 until 23 June 2020.

The following facilities are not to be open to members of the public:
‚Ě鬆caravan parks and camping grounds, except for accommodating permanent residents of the caravan park or camping ground or other persons who have no other place of permanent residence, and allowing visitors to visit persons referred to above;
‚Ě鬆indoor recreation facilities,
‚Ě鬆public swimming pools, and
‚Ě鬆community facilities.

However, exemptions have been granted from these closures for early education and childcare facilities or when the facility is being used to provide a voluntary service to assist vulnerable members of the public such as food banks and services for homeless people.


The cessation of all camping from Thursday 26 March is a decision made by the NSW Government. There is a compulsory Public Health Order which we are required to follow. As such, no camping or caravans are permitted at the camping ground at Gum Flat.

Failure to comply with this Order attracts penalties: For individuals, fines of up to $11,000 or 6 months imprisonment (or both) plus a $5,500 fine each day it continues.

Gum Flat will remain open for day recreational activities (such as fishing) that can be done while still practicing social distancing.
