Shire of Boddington


welcome to the Shire of Boddington

Nestled on the banks of the Hotham River is the township of Boddington. Located within easy reach of the metropolitan area, the Boddington Shire boasts rural living at its best with essential services close at hand.

However, don’t let its country-town charm fool you – Boddington offers singles, couples and families all the essential services they need to enjoy a more relaxed way of life without sacrificing on convenience. With established school, shops and recreational facilities, it’s easy to see why Boddington really is the best of both worlds.
