Gooloogong is mostly in Cowra Shire, although some of it is in Forbes Shire. The village is located mid way between the towns of Cowra and Forbes on the Lachlan Valley Way. It is close to the historic township of Canowindra and the Lachlan River flows nearby.
Dr William Redfern established a cattle station named Gool-a-gong in the district in the 1820s. Redfern was the personal physician to Governor Macquarie. Little is left at that location as the settlement was relocated to escape flooding. Gooloogong is known for its log cabin hall.
