A social highlight is the annual, award-winning Drover’s Campfire, which celebrates Boggabri’s rich agricultural history and showcases the community’s unmatched hospitality. This unique five-day event brings more than 1200 visitors to the Boggabri Showground in April.
Enjoy campfires, delicious camp oven meals, shearing demonstrations, watch rural demonstrations such as heavy horse pulling, working dogs and wood turning, browse antique machinery, tour cotton farms, cattle stations, woolsheds and local attractions. Local mining tours also expose visitors to the ins and outs of coal and coal seam gas exploration. The evening is when everyone comes together around the campfire. The array of night time entertainment is sure to prove to be enjoyable and a great way to have lots of laughs and meet new friends.
The event evokes the camaraderie of Aussie drovers sharing a hot meal and conversation around a warm open fire, underneath the twinkling night sky. The number and range of displays, tours and demonstrations grows every year, ensuring there is always something new to entice return visits.
