Rural

Gooloogong is a progressive village with a strong sense of community that has many businesses offering all the services a visitor would want and there is always a good time to be had at the ‘Goolie’ pub. The free camp site near the Lachlan River is a popular spot for travellers.

The village of Gooloogong is located 34 kilometres north-west of Cowra enroute to Forbes and Parkes. The road to Gooloogong follows the curves of the Lachlan River, and the village itself is on the banks of the river. The village features a unique log cabin community hall, built in 1937 by Hugh Heavener in preparation for a planned project on the Lachlan River and an influx of workers, in need of entertainment. Alas the project went to Jemalong after the war. The village also features a hotel, service station, general store, cafe and several other businesses.
