Hotham River Foreshore and Lions Weir is a 2km, grade 1 Return hike located in Boddington Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 0.75hrs to complete.
The Peel Region is your place for natural adventures. Enjoy this beautiful river foreshore in the country town Boddington with walks and a weir with a large open park space with gazebo and BBQs available all year round to enjoy a tranquil BBQ with friends and family.
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 rivers 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.
