As small as Bogan Gate is the town qualifies for a synopsis. Bogan Gate is the last (or first) town on the Kidman Highway heading to Parkes. There is very little at Bogan Gate and does not even a service town. The name is also quite intriguing.
At the 2006 census, Bogan Gate and the surrounding area had a population of 253. Bogan Gate is derived from the local Aboriginal word meaning "the birthplace of a notable headman of the local tribe".
Attractions include the annual Bogan Gate Arts Festival, golf tournaments at the local nine-hole Bogan Gate Golf Club
