Woodford

Woodford is a small but very pretty town, 20 minutes west of Caboolture on the D'Aguilar Highway. Noted for its wide streets, grand old hotel and colonial style shops, it was one of the earliest settled areas of the shire and its history is reflected in several noted tourist spots.

Woodford is home to one of Australia's largest collections of narrow gauge steam locos. Members of the Australian Narrow Gauge Railway Museum Society have developed a museum off Archer Street and on the first and third Sunday of the month, volunteers run a restored steam loco through the town for visitors to enjoy.

The summit of Mount Mee offers panoramic views over the Caboolture Shire to Moreton Bay. The Mount Mee state forest with its walking tracks, picnic areas and camping sites, is extremely popular. The well signed walks wind through superb sub tropical rainforest and offer spectacular views.

Rich farm lands produce strawberries, bananas, pineapples, pawpaw with many roadside stalls and shops the place to stop and select produce fresh from the farm daily.

Woodford township oozes charm with its colonial shops offering a variety of goods from antiques, fashion, home wares and eateries. For something different pop into Grapeland Fruit shop where the King (Elvis) is immortalised in posters and you can be taken back to the years of rock n roll with impromptu renditions of Elvis' greatest hits.

The Storeybrook Herb and Cottage display gardens at Petersen Road Woodford, and is another charming spot where visitors can enjoy homemade Devonshire teas and a stroll through the attractive fragrant gardens.

Woodford is also home to a large annual music festival.

Accommodation in the area includes a motel and bed and breakfast at nearby D'Aguilar and a bed and breakfast establishment at Storeybrook herb and gardens.
