While today Bogantungan is just a few houses on the highway, it has its place in history.
Things to Experience
Bogantungan Historical Railway Station On 26 February 1960, Bogantungan became the site of one of Queensland’s worst train disasters. The Midlander passenger train, heading east to Rockhampton, passed over the flooded Medway Creek, just west of the town. The bridge collapsed when the train was partly over, and a number of carriages dropped into the water. Sadly, four passengers and three crew were killed, and 43 people were injured.
The station has numerous interpretive panels and memorabilia about the crash.
