Boggabri Website and Business Directory

Welcome to Boggabri

Boggabri was proclaimed a township in 1860, but came into its own in 1882 with the opening of the railway. Today Boggabri, located on the Kamilaroi Highway east of Narrabri, is a historic small country town with big community spirit offering a unique country lifestyle. With a rich agricultural history and several recently opened coal mines, the town is set for further expansion. The town boasts a nine hole golf course and an RSL Club. A modern motel, caravan park with cabins and a hotel that provides accommodation in the town while fuel and motor repairs are also available. The main business area of Boggabri has over the years been found in three different streets. This makes for a interesting mix of architecture which can be explored with a walk along the Boggabri Heritage Trail.

Boggabri Business and Community Progress Association calls for Grain Valley Road to be completed

Boggbari is missing out on tourism because Grain Valley Road isn't completely sealed, the town's progress association says.

The road is a major thoroughfare, which connects Mullaley and Boggabri, with 17.4km still unsealed after more than a decade of lobbying. The project is estimated at $8.2 million and is waiting on state funding.

The gravel section has been labelled “dangerous and vehicle-destroying”, with many avoiding the route altogether and instead going through Gunnedah.

“Boggabri is missing out on tourism because the tar’s just not there,” Boggabri Business and Community Progress Association member Donna Turner said.

“A lot of people that come down from Coonabarabran to Boggabri and have caravans won’t use the road because it’s not tarred. They go through Gunnedah instead and bypass Boggabri.”

The artist is the newest retained firefighter in the Boggabri 229 Fire & Rescue NSW team after four days of training in Armidale.

“They actually put you in real scenarios so they have what they call Charlie’s house, so it’s set up inside like an actual house… [and] it’s completely blacked out and they fill it with smoke and raise it up to 140 degrees, and they give you a scenario,” Ms McAllan said.
