The Namoi River passes through Boggabri. Fishing is a popular activity on the Namoi River.
Boggabri's main tourist attraction is Gin's Leap, so-called after a story of an Aboriginal girl who jumped from the cliff while trying to escape a group of men in the 17th or 18th century.
There are two local primary schools in Boggabri: Boggabri Public School and Sacred Heart Primary School.
The town is also home to the Boggabri John Prior Health Service and Prior House Frail Aged Care Home, both named after resident Dr John Prior OAM (1922-2014), who served as the community's sole doctor for half a century and is believed to be New South Wales' longest serving GP.
Boggabri railway station is situated on the Mungindi line, 515 km from Sydney. The station opened in 1882 consists of a station building on a single side platform, a passing loop and small goods yard. Currently a single daily Xplorer diesel railmotor operating between Sydney and Moree serves the station.
