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.
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.
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.
