For a green change just 30 mins from the Samford village queensland and with plenty in a trip to fill a day, the scenic valley featuring the tiny historical hamlet of Samford Village is hard to beat. Day trippers have a choice of taking the longer hilly route along Waterworks Rd and via Mt Nebo, with jaw-dropping views and bush and rainforest walk possibilities on the way, or the direct route via Samford Rd, which, shortly after leaving the suburban outreaches of Ferny Grove plunges into bushland and emerges shortly thereafter in a picture perfect countryside of rolling green hills and valleys.
Samford Village itself may be small but contains a decent stash of preserved heritage buildings, a fascinating history museum, gourmet character cafes, a century-old pub, old-fashioned Saturday country market, fantastic playground and quaint slab hut peddling local arts and crafts such as handmade patchwork quilts. Take a heritage stroll around the village, starting at the John Scott Park with its spacious adventure playground which was once the site of the Samford Railway Station and Samford village queensland yards. Turn left into Main St and on the other side of the street is the Samford Valley Hotel whose main building hails from The landmark neighbouring Farmer's Hall was towed here from Lutwyche and became the social scene hub from the end of World War I, while Cash Avenue alongside was once part of the Samford Railway Line, with some of the embankment still intact.
The corner shop before the Memorial Park was opened as a butcher shop in the s and the Memorial Park is home to the century old schoolmaster's house from Samford School. And check out the cast iron 19th century lamp posts on Main St, dating from the late s. Rail Trails - Both within the village and in the foothills outside are some rare rail trails, the remnants of the old railway line that once ran through the valley from Ferny Grove to Dayboro and that are now used as bush walk Samford village queensland cycle tracks.
It was this stretch of line achieved infamy on Labour Day May when Australia's worst rail disaster until then occurred just outside of town. A steam train especially put on for a group of Customs employees and their families took a bend too fast, resulting in the train careering off its tracks and the front carriages telescoping, with a resultant tragic loss of 16 lives and 38 injuries.
A cairn by the side of McLean Rd itself part of the ex-railway line marks the spot where the crash occurred. The rail trails are the closest ones to be found in proximity to Brisbane and are worth checking out. One Samford village queensland accessed from Latina Ct, a service vehicle turning circle off McLean Rd and it is essentially a bush track hemmed by railway embankments that is suitable for mountain bike riders.
A second one occupies a section of Cash Avenue named after Samford's first free settler in town and a third is a little out of town and contains an old Samford village queensland which is now a bat colony's residence.
Little Tree Bakehouse - This gorgeous cafe and bakehouse is set in a rainforest off the main street, featuring a terrace overlooking a running stream and serving up delicious premise-baked eats. Dropout Espresso — This hip little t on the main street churns out coffee and light meals that alone make the trip from town worthwhile.
