The most populous town in Marradong Country, and just 90 minutes from Perth, you will never tire of things to do. Walk along the banks of the picturesque Hotham River where you’ll find a magnificent public recreation space that includes a nature play space, a skate park, multipurpose courts, a pump track, an outdoor exercise space, shade and BBQ structures and amphitheatre style tiered seating.
Boddington is emerging as a tourist mecca of people enjoying local public quirky artworks, the Interpretive Centre or enjoying a choice of cafes along the main street. Close to the town are a range of nature based trails including Ranford Pool Walk, Bibbulman Track, and Tullis Bridge Trail. Explore local Aboriginal history by taking a look at Dilyan’s Grave and mining industry by booking a Go West Goldmine Experience or marvel at South32’s bauxite mine overland conveyor belt.
