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.”

What’s Your opinion?

Oh dear. I dont consider myself a bogan, however I have lived in 3 of those listed places.

Im also curious how Kambah managed to hold Charnwood, Causeway, Symonston and Ainslie out of the race?

Kambah will have won out as it is about the size of 4 regular suburbs thus outing Charnwood. Causway is technically Kingston so will have been brought up by the upper end of that suburb. Symonston – not enough residential to classify. Ainslie too expensive.

Clown Killer,

If you were a true Kambahite you wouldn’t have to go home to do those things because you wouldn’t have a job in the first place.

I’m going to go home at lunchtime … so I can move the Falcon onto the nature strip, let the dog out to go wandering and change into my black Lee jeans and moccasins, on my way back to work I’ll swing past the Tavern and pick up a six-pack of Woodstock & Cola and a pack of Winnie blues … I can feel myself connecting with the spiritual roots of my suburb already!
