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.

The Shire of Boddington's restricted burning period now ceases from 22 March 2017.

Permits are no longer required, but please continue to be cautious and vigilant.


Rikki Clarke (Creative Spaces) has completed the draft Interior Design for the Boddington Community Hub.

This document can be viewed here: Draft Interior Design Development.  

This describes how Boddington’s community stories might be told in the new visitor centre.

The work done by Claire Savage (Savagely Creative) in collecting those stories is described in the Boddington Interpretation Plan.

Community feedback is now being sought and a date for a community workshop to discuss the Interior Design will be announced shortly. This is anticipated to be shortly after the next Bodd News goes on sale, 2-3 weeks away.

Both documents are also available for viewing at the Shire Office.
