A provisional school had been established by 1893. In 1905, a new Booie State School was erected. Booie State School closed in 1963.
In June 1954, Booie hit the news after local boys claimed to have seen a two-legged monster in a cave. Despite searching by experienced bushman, the monster was not found and it was speculated that the boys had seen a large kangaroo.
