About Bogan Gate
Take the time to rest and explore.
Located approximately 30km to the west of Parkes, Bogan Gate has a population of approximately 300 people. Bogan Gate is derived from the local Aboriginal word meaning "the birthplace of a notable headman of the local tribe". The village lies on the Sydney - Broken Hill rail line, and it is the junction for the Trundle-Tottenham Branch line.
Bogan Gate is a progressive township with a memorial hall, school, post office, police station, hotel motel with meals available, garage, general store/newsagency and takeaway.
There is a Craft Shop in the old Railway Station open on weekends and Public Holidays (which fall on a Monday), from 10am - 5pm.
A great recreation area is Burrawang Park, where you will find a children's playground and BBQ facilities. The nine hole golf course and night-lit tennis courts also provide some great leisure options.
