Welcome to Marradong Country

A landscape rich with diverse and distinct flora and fauna, with vast skies that surround the undulating hills, winding rivers and open pastures, this is life in the hand of nature. Discover and explore the reserves and open spaces all to be freely enjoyed and available to walkers, picnickers and travellers.

Located just 90 minutes drive south east of Perth, the region encompasses the townships of Boddington, Wandering and Williams, all of which have a long history of farming and grazing. Marradong Country is now emerging as a gourmet food and wine region, with several wineries, olive groves and producers of preserves and homemade delights available to tantalize your taste buds.

Take a stroll along the Hotham River in Boddington, walk the main street and talk to the locals while taking in some of our historcial buildings such as our Old School or the original Road Boards building or visit the talented ladies in our local Arts and Crafts Centre to admire their handiwork and purchase some handmade gifts for your loved ones. Boddington has lots to offer…

MAIN STREET VISION

Council has adopted the Main Street Vision a significant aspect of which is to concentrate streetscape infrastructure at key nodes of activity, to bring existing pedestrian activity together, to maximise incidences and opportunities for social interaction. These nodes would be located where most beneficial to adjacent businesses and/or community facilities.

 The nodes will define the boundaries and heart of the town centre precinct, physically define the threshold of the town centre precinct at its four key entry/exit points, establish a point of difference, prioritise pedestrians and slow vehicle traffic.

 They also reduce apparent width of Main Street - reduce the width of road pavement at strategic points to bring the sides of the street closer together and to support the above strategies, road pavement width at points of constraint to be to suit 2 unescorted heavy vehicles passing, and/or a max width escorted vehicle across both lanes.
