Australia’s top bogan suburb – They name a few in Canberra!

By dr phil 4 August 2009 125

I was looking at the punch today and they have a list of Australia’s top bogan suburbs:

    Albion Park NSW, Dandenong Vic, Kambah ACT, Redcliffe Qld, Wyoming NSW, Salisbury SA, Chigwell Tas, Ipswich Qld, Rockingham WA, Moe Vic.

Who said Canberra has a bogan suburb?

    “Canberra’s sprawling suburbs are so huge that they are split into several regions of suburbs, Woden, Belconnen (Belco) and Tuggeranong (Tuggers) and therefore, like any suburban mass, become booner/bogan territory,” he writes.

    “Tuggers and Belconnen Belco are by far the best contenders with large clusters of booner suburbs. Before I hear complaints I am aware that Queanbeyan would win in a count back but is disqualified on the technicality that it is in NSW not the ACT. So the final best bogan/booner suburb in Canberra is: Kambah (in Tuggers). Quite a charming suburb where I spent large parts of my youth getting pissed in parks, but given the number of v8 Falcolns on the nature strip, wandering terrier dogs and the enormous size of the local Burns Club and indoor cricket centre it is Canberra’s booner capital.”

So long as there’s good mobile phone reception.

Well I guess I better move then, Manuka and Dickson are obviously infected, where to go. Richardson looks nice in the evening when the sun sets on the tyre fire.

Are you saying you don’t fit the profile then?

It depends dude, you never actually say anything, you just throw snide remarks from the sidelines.

What is the profile ?

If it includes eating at McDonalds occasionally I guess I do.

My point all along is the new definition of bogan is stupid, liking Jimmy Barnes is not bogan, playing it at 3 in the morning is, having a white commodore is not bogan, using it to chuck burn outs in your white trackie pants is, liking mcdonalds is not bogan, feeding it to your kids until they become fat slobs is, going to public school isn’t bogan, oh o.k. maybe it is 😉

Personally I think gold creek is the last bastion of independant retailing in Canberra and should be cherished. It even has a little lolly shop that my kids love.

I’m sure someone will respond by posting that stupid list.
