Welcome to Boggabri

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.

It’s been a big week in Parliament. 

The Coal Seam Gas Moratorium Bill came on incredibly fast in the Legislative Assembly. Thank you for your public support of the position we took, it helps to show that Government members are out of touch with community sentiment. 

The next opportunity to raise concerns is through the Independent Planning Commission process. I will be making a submission, advocating for the strongest possible protection of groundwater for the sake of communities and agriculture. I encourage you to do the same.

With higher rates of socioeconomic disadvantage in rural and remote Australia compared to cities and metropolitan areas, the program can help respond to these challenges, which are exacerbated by the drought, fires and now COVID-19.
