The Bogan River

The Bogan River was discovered by Charles Sturt in 1829 and is a minor river in the central western region of New South Wales, Australia. The Bogan starts near Forbes and flows generally north-north-west past Nyngan. Unlike the other main rivers of inland New South Wales, the Bogan does not rise in the well-watered highland areas, so its flow is low and erratic and not much use for irrigation. The Bogan is a tributary of the Darling River. Major Sir Thomas Mitchell reached it in 1835.
