Boolite is a small wheat farming town near Warracknabeal in Victoria, Australia.

The town had a hall that was used for dancing, fairs and concerts.[2] There was a local school which had an annual picnic, and flower day. Furthermore, the school was able to raise significant funds for the war effort during the Great War.[3] The town competed for the Emmett trophy in Australian football against other towns in the area.[4] The town also participated in cricket.[5] Today, little of the town remains.
