  Boggabri is a small town on the Kamilaroi Highway between Gunnedah and Narrabri at 30° 42'S 150° 02'E. Population is 901 (2006 census). The town was established on the banks of the Namoi River but was moved a kilometre away from the river after a flood and is now reputed to be the only settlement along the Namoi River not subject to flooding. The North West Railway passes through the town. Boggabri is set in the Namoi Floodplain and surrounded by fertile agricultural land growing grain and cotton and grazing cattle. The flat floodplain profile around Boggabri is interrupted by ranges and hills including a nearby sandstone outcrop named Gin's Leap. The town lies in the Gunnedah Basin containing several valuable deposits of coal, there are two working coal mines within 20 kilometres of the town.
