Nestled in an elbow of beautiful Samford Creek, the village of Samford is an idyllic picture of relaxed country living. Approximately 45 minutes drive from the bustle of Brisbane, Samford is located in the endearing Samford Valley at the foot of Mount Nebo.
The picturesque drive to Samford will take you through forest, farmland and valleys, framed by the spectacular mountains of the D'Aguilar range in the distance. Quaint craft shops, art galleries and historical points of interest are sprinkled throughout the village. The historic pub, built-in 1906 is a great place for lunch. Or you may like to sample fresh local fare at a charming cafe or restaurant offering creek and rainforest views.
For something special, visit one of Samford's regular markets for handmade gifts or savour farm-fresh produce, preserves, baked goods and organic tea and coffee.
On the eastern outskirts of Samford is Brisbane Forest Park and Samford State Forest. Put on a pair of comfortable walking shoes and discover gorges fringed with rainforest, freshwater ponds, thick eucalypt woodland and spectacular views to Moreton Bay. Good picnic and barbecue facilities are provided so make a day of it with a packed lunch.
Accommodation at Samford includes boutique hotels, mountain retreats and bed-and-breakfasts. Camping facilities are also provided at Brisbane Forest Park.
