Samford is a town in South East Queensland. Samford Village (population 749) is 21 km north-west of central Brisbane. Samford Valley stretches further to the west of the village.


Samford Valley is a beautiful country getaway around 30 minutes drive from the Brisbane CBD. There is rolling green hills, bushwalking, a historic hamlet with lots of cafes, shops, museums, heritage buildings and a beautiful country tavern. This is a great location to take the family out for a day trip to the country, less than an hour from Brisbane CBD.

Get in[edit]

There is not much in the way of public transport to Samford Valley. There is a train that goes to Ferny Grove (end of the line). But it is probably a good hour to walk from there. Not recommended in the summer months.

Get around[edit]

The historical hamlet of Samford Village can easily be navigated by foot. If you plan to look around the greater Samford Valley area, then you are best to have a car.
