John Oxley memorial at Booligal. He was the surveyor general of NSW.
This is not far from the Cobb Highway.

On July 5, 1817 Lieutenant John Oxley RN, Surveyor General of NSW, passed by what was to become the village of Booligal. He and his party were the first white men to see the Riverine Plains. A monument was erected to Oxley in 1967 and remains today as a testament to his surveying the inland river system.

The Booligal township was laid out by Surveyor Twynham and gazetted in 1860. The first inn, the Drovers' Arms. later a Cobb & Co terminus, opened in 1861. A second hotel was established in 1867 and held the name of the current hotel "The Duke of Edinburgh". The 1860s was a thriving decade for Booligal. Travellers found that "grog was plentiful at Booligal and bar prices uncomplicated". This was because reliable sources of drink were hard to come by, with "grog" consisting of everything from kerosene to tobacco. All drinks were 6d, but no matter what you ordered you always got the same drink.

At its height Booligal had two hotels, two punts, a courthouse, blacksmith, school, post office store, wool scour and several general stores. By the 1890s Booligal and its 500 people was a centre for bullock and horse teamsters who hauled wool and supplies as far as Willandra. In 1871 a provisional school opened, with locals applying in 1875 for it to be converted to a Public School. The children were taught in a tent measuring 18 by 15 feet until a school building was erected in 1901, which still houses Booligal school children today (2006).

Electricity only came to Booligal in 1986 - at a cost of $29,000 a property.

The Long Paddock covers the Cobb Highway stretching between Moama and Wilcania, telling the story of the drovers, its history and its people.
".. Oh send us to our just rewards In Hay or Hell, but, gracious Lord, Deliver us from Booligal"
Made famous by the Banjo Paterson poem, Booligal was established around 1850 as it was an excellent crossing place on the Lachlan River for stock travelling from Queensland to the Darling River on the way to the major sales in Melbourne. From 1859 a punt was operating across the Lachlan River to the north of the village. Edward Roset built the first bridge in Booligal in 1872-73 for which he charged a toll of 3d per wheel.
This bridge was closed to traffic when the bridge prior to the existing bridge was built in 1913.
