Take a walk along one of the riverbanks walk trails for a more quiet experience. In the summer, you can cross the weir to the other side of the river and see the wildlife along the river's edge. The Hotham River/Ranford walk trail continues east along the old railway track to Ranford Pool, returning to Boddington via the riverbank when river levels allow.
"It's a fantastic adventure park for kids, with a skate and BMX area," said visitor Karen Ward. I wanted to keep it a secret."
