Bogan Gate is derived from the local Aboriginal word meaning “the birthplace of a notable headman of the local tribe”.
Located approximately 30km to the west of Parkes, Bogan Gate has a population of approximately 250 people.
The village lies on the Sydney – Broken Hill rail line, and it is the junction for the Trundle Tottenham Branch line.
Bogan Gate is an impressive village featuring a quaint Pub, so plan a counter lunch after taking a trip to see Utes in the Paddock at Ootha.
