A pretty walk trail runs alongside The Hotham River through Boddington. In summer, you are able to walk along the weir to the other side of the river and enjoy the wildlife on and around the river’s edge. The river also offers the opportunity to fish for local fish species, take a canoe ride or cool off in the shallows.
A picnic area next to a weir on the banks of the river features a public BBQ, rotunda and toilets. Lions Weir is a delightful spot to relax where a small dam has been created in the Hotham River to create a year-round haven for water birds and fish. A fish ladder (series of rock pools) has been built adjoining and up to top of the wall to enable fish to swim upstream in the spawning season.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.
Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
