Things to do

Explore our winery and our region

Hotham Ridge

There are 167 acres to be explored, extensive landscaped gardens, 25 acres of vineyard and a very large area of old growth native bush on the ridge, with a number of walk trails. A haven for birds, frogs, reptiles, kangaroos and their watchers.

Boyagin Rock

Boyagin Nature Reserve (4966 ha, declared in 1991) is 'island' of remnant bushland within the wheatbelt east of the Darling Range. It has similar high conservation value for both fauna and flora. Native animals reintroduced to the Reserve include numbats, woylies and other marsupials. The tammar wallaby also survives in the area.

Dryandra Woodland

Dryandra Woodland, near Narrogin, is a conservation area featuring the largest remnant of original vegetation in the western Wheatbelt. More than 25 mammals, 100 birds and 50 reptiles call Dryandra home, including Western Australia's state mammal emblem, the numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus). Although the numbat is Dryandra's best known inhabitant, woylies, tammar wallabies, brushtail possums, tawny frogmouths, kangaroos and wallabies are regularly seen here.
Dryandra is an especially scenic area with magnificent woodlands and spectacular wildflowers in spring. The open eucalypt woodlands of white-barked wandoo and powderbark covered much of the Wheatbelt before it was cleared for farming. Thickets of rock sheoak provide habitat for several of Dryandra's rare species.

Barna Mia

Barna Mia is a place to discover threatened native marsupials in a natural setting, and experience the wonders of the woodland, once the sun has set the action begins. A tour guide takes visitors on a delightful journey through the sanctuary. Using specially placed lights, you can see threatened native animals such as dalgyte, woylie, wurrup, quenda and boodie.

Mt Cook

Mount Cooke which at 582m above sea level (and about 200m above the surrounding plateau) is the highest granite monadnock in the Darling Range. There are some excellent views, including to Mounts Vincent and Cuthbert.
A 3.5 km walk to the summit is on the well maintained Bibbulmun Track, including a section extending from the Mt Cooke Campsite in the NW to the summit and then along the summit ridge.
The initial, off-track part of the walk visits the less known eastern side of Mount Cooke, near the foot of steep, 100m high granite rock faces.

Hotham River Weir and Fish Ladder

The 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.
A pretty walk trail runs alongside the The Hotham River through Boddington.

Boddington Rodeo

Since its inception in 1976, the Boddington Lion's Club has successfully run the Lions Rodeo annually on the first Saturday in November each year. Recognised as the largest Rodeo in Western Australia the Rodeo Weekend has something in store for everyone. We look forward to welcoming the Australia's best competitors to Boddington...Let's Rodeo!

Narrogin Gliding Club

Located in rolling farmland in the heart of the Wheatbelt, Narrogin Gliding Club has a long history, a great location, well developed infrastructure and a good fleet. The Narrogin region produces big, reliable thermals in an interesting and varied but very safe soaring environment. A great place to fly!
