Nyngan residents put town on the map during cruise

A group of Nyngan 'bogans' were spotted cruising on the Ovation of the Seas in Auckland, New Zealand recently. 

Margaret Gudgeon along with seven family and friends donned their green t-shirts with Nyngan's very own Big Bogan printed on the back for St Patrick's day recently. 

Mrs Gudgeon said Nyngan Innovations had also printed an Irish hat on the icon to mark the special occasion, which caused a lot of interest on board the ship and in Auckland. 

"Everyone seems to know someone from Nyngan or had passed through the town at some stage," she said. 

"There were people from Coolabah on board the ship who came up and introduced themselves.

"We were known as the 'bogan girls' for the rest of the trip. We really put Nyngan on the map."
