Gooloogong is encounted when traveling between Canowindra and Grenfell, or Cowra and Parkes. Gooloogong is a very small cross roads town that serves quite a wide area. From an industry perspective very little has survived but the main street (highway) has a very interesting park that determines travellers should linger awhile.
The village located in central New South Wales. At the 2006 census, Gooloogong and the surrounding area had a population of 852.
Dr William Redfern established a cattle station named Gool-a-gong in the district in the 1820s. Redfern was the personal physician to Governor Macquarie. Little is left at that location as the settlement was relocated to escape flooding. Gooloogong is known for its log cabin hall.
The original village developed on the banks of the Lachlan. All that remains of that settlement is a headstone on the site of the original Anglican Church. The village later moved to higher ground due to flooding.
Given the distances are short a short visit and perhaps a refreshment is warranted.
