Project overview

A Moree Special Activation Precinct will be investigated in the New England and North West region.

It will create a thriving business hub that will take advantage of its location in the middle of the most productive grain region in Australia, leveraging the Inland Rail route and Newell Highway.

The Moree Precinct would create a new business hub that specialises in agribusiness, logistics and food processing industries.

Special Activation Precincts will create jobs, attract businesses and investors, and fuel economic development in regional NSW to ensure regions are well placed to grow and meet future economic needs.

All Special Activation Precincts are being delivered as part of the A$4.2 billion Snowy Hydro Legacy Fund.
