Bonogin is a hinterland locality of Gold Coast City in South East Queensland, Australia. According to the 2011 census it had a population of 4,182. It is on the edge of the Gold Coast hinterland. It is about 81 kilometres (50 mi) away from Brisbane.
European settlement commenced in the 1870s. The early industries were timber cutting and dairying. Later bananas were grown.
In the 1980s, some of the farms were subdivided to form acreage residential developments.
Part of the City of Gold Coasts Beaches to Bushland volunteer restoration program includes Bonogin Creek. The primary tributary of the creek begins in the Gold Coast hinterland. A hinterland regional park bushcare group was established in 1999 to address conservation of local plant species and also attempt to restore natural habitat of the creek. Davenport Park is a suburban park running along a lower point of the creek, within suburban Bonogin. In 2013 Bonogin Valley bushcare group formed to help with restoration of the park and creek area.
