    Back to Bri Festival Long Weekend in October

    A major new Narrabri community festival to be held on the October long weekend is to be launched this year.

    The festival, ‘Back to the ‘Bri’ will aim to encourage former residents to return to town for the weekend, offer special shopping promotions and stage a carnival program of entertainment.

    The impetus for the new festival came from the Narrabri Chamber of Commerce whose members saw the need to replace the Chamber’s traditional Maitland Street Christmas Carnival with a community event at a less climatically challenging time of year.

    Chamber members have felt that Christmas weather is too hot and often too stormy to make the most of the function.

    Many Carnival goers and shoppers have agreed.

    The Chamber is planning ‘Back to the ‘Bri to be a ‘Narrabri inclusive’ weekend, drawing residents and visitors and encouraging former
    residents to return to town.

    “It will be an all of Narrabri event,” said Chamber president Russell Stewart.

    “We would like to see it become a weekend where ex-Narrabri people come back, visit family, meet friends and shop in town. It will be a community festival and a carnival weekend.”

    The Chamber is planning a program of events to entertain and engage and encourage local shopping.

Gas import spells end of Santos' controversial Narrabri CSG, analysts say

By Cole Latimer & Peter Hannam 9 July 2018 — 2:30pm

Author: Kate

Analysts say four proposed new gas import terminals around Australia have ended Santos’ contentious NSW Narrabri coal seam gas project.

Santos’ Narrabri project is a proposed $3 billion gas operation that has been consistently opposed by environmental groups, and now Macquarie Bank analysts believe the rise of Australian gas import terminals will end all potential government support.

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

Author: Kate

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.”
