Nature and Environment

Around half of Boddington Shire is State Forest (predominantly jarrah and marri), making it ideal for hiking, camping, picnics, birdwatching and viewing wildflowers in Spring.

A 2km walk trail along the river provides wheelchair access between the caravan park and Ranford Pool, a favourite fishing, birdwatching and picnic place. Another favourite picnic and fishing spot is Lions Weir closer to town.

The Bibbulmun Track passes through the Shire with Long Gully Bridge on the Harvey-Quindanning Road providing an excellent access point for trekkers.

The Boddington Shire consists of nearly 50 per cent State Forest and has an array of parks and reserves for your enjoyment.
