The town of Booligal is a small cluster of houses on the tree-lined Lachlan River. It was made famous by Banjo Paterson's poem 'Hay and Hell and Booligal'. It is surrounded by open expanses of grass plain and saltbush home to grazing kangaroos and emus.

Hawks, wedge-tail eagles and galahs soar overhead. It was once used as a stop over for Cobb and Co Coaches and is now famous for the annual Booligal Sheep Races that draw crowds from far and near.

The Booligal Hotel provides travellers with meals, ice cold drinks, postal agency, groceries and accommodation. Caravan and camping available.

The town is home to a cricket oval for the occasional social game, shaded eating areas, playground, barbecue, and toilet facilities.

Local children enjoy the Booligal Public School, and the Booligal War Memorial Hall is used for yoga, childrens playgroup, meetings and events.

Booligal Sheep Races

Enjoy a great fun family day out at the annual Booligal Sheep Races.

Relax on the green lawn of the Booligal Cricket Ground, enjoy the barbecue and the thrill of racing your sheep. There are great prizes throughout the day.

The day kicks off with the Best Decorated Sheep Judging and then the races begin. Don't worry if your sheep is not a finalist as there is a chance to buy a sheep in a heat in the sheep auction in the middle of the day. Get a syndicate together and your sheep could be the winner of the Booligal Cup!

It's a great event to get involved in as all proceeds go to local charities. Come along and see how the locals have fun in the outback.

Camping spots available. Entertainment also at Booligal Hotel.
