Often seen sporting southern cross tattoos and collecting dole payments, bogans strive to live in plasterboard houses on a block where they have the freedom to park their Skyline and approximately six other disused car bodies/caravans. In their natural habitat, bogans consume VB* or, at weddings, XXXX Gold* and smoke "Winny Blues"*. Favoured attire includes board shorts, wife beaters and occasionally shoes, and very rarely a collared shirt.

*Winfield Blues are an Australian Brand of Cigarettes Favoured by tradesmen and the aforementioned bogan.
XXXX Gold and VB are Australian varieties of beer (very loosely speaking) and are rumoured to contain sweat and dirt.
Bogan 1: "Oi! Are youse goin' down the pub later?"
Bogan 2: " Yeah aye, might flex it down in the skyline a bit later. Got no petrol but. Gotta get down to centrelink aye. Chuck us me winny blues Mum."
Bogan 1: "Here y'are love. I'll do some snags for youse tea."

Also known as ferals or trailer trash, bogans are usually people of low socio-economic status, that live in cheap housing and drive old Holdens and Fords. They swear, are often unemployed and spend their dole on beer and rollies. Male bogans wear flannies, old jeans and are missing teeth. Female bogans usually have a tribe of snotty nosed, ungroomed kids being dragged along while she smokes a cigarette pushing a pram. Her 6 kids usually have 6 different fathers, none of whom pay child support as they are all unemployed no hopers. She often has a bad home dye job on her hair and sports oversized Dada clothes that belong to her bogan partner. She will frequently scream obscenities at her children in public places.

There has been a new phenomenom of bogan in the last 10 years: the middle class bogan. Usually the male is a tradie who makes ok money. Being bogan at heart, they attempt to not look bogan with a new car and a mortgage. The female middle class bogan gets her nails and hair done. The male bogan hasn't got a mullet, but usually a shaved head. But middle class bogans are still racist, stupid, and like their booze.
Look at that bogan screaming at her kids with a fag hanging out of her mouth.

The Bogas Maximus is a fascinating creature located in Sydney, Australia. Previously bred and civilised in the outer west, most have now migrated to the Shire. The Bogas Maximus can be lured out of their natural habitat fairly easily. All it takes is cheap beer, Lebanese lifesavers and a national pride day. Bogans can be observed participating in activities such as watching the footy, going to pubs and/or starting riots most often rooted from racism and a general dislike for anything unaustralian. The Bogus Maximus prides itself in being Australian, and can be found wearing items of clothing such as overalls, wife beater t-shirts and thongs. Male and female bogans rarely interface with each other, and only gather together to breed and repopulate.
Haha, look at all those bogans starting riots in Cronulla.

Bogan n.
Bogans, although this is not widely known, are part of a seperate subspecies of homo sapien sapien. (This is regretted, however it is known that homo sapien boganus can breed with homo sapien sapiens, although it is unlikely) They are typically rude, uncouth, daggy, and use words suck as sheila and other abominable expressions.

Bogan adv.
Doing things stupidly or incorrectly, often whilst consuming the alcohol that is cheap yet strong.

Bogan adj.
When something is dirty, fat and inconsiderate.
What bogan decor!

Bogan v.
Again not commonly known, it is used as a filler verb, normally pertaining to fiddling around a bit.

Then you just bogan a bit, and you are done!
Normal Person1: Oh my, I can't beleive that after all these years the London Symphony is still fabulous
Normal Person2: Yes I know. Have you heard the SS?
Normal Person3: Yes, although they play dreadfully out of tune
Normal Person1: Yes I agree. And their speakers make it feel like an AC/DC concert or something
Bogan: AC/DC! YEAH YOU FUCKERS!!! WOOO!!
