Bogandilla is a locality in the Western Downs Region, Queensland, Australia.[2] In the 2016 census, Bogandilla had a population of 28 people.[1]

History[edit]

Bogandilla Provisional Schoool opened circa July 1918 as a half-time school (a teacher shared their time between 2 schools) with Noonga Provisional School, but became a full-time provisional school in 1919. Although Noonga is not an official place name as at 2019, there is a Noonga Creek in neighbouring Jackson North which is likely to be the location of the other school. It was closed in 1927 due to low student numbers.[3]
