Welcome to the Woodford Historical Society and Museum’s web site.

Sawmills of Durundur

The Woodford Historical Society obtained a Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Grant. RADF is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Queensland local councils.  The RADF grant was for researching and the collection of information and stories from the Woodford/Durundur QLD area since the Archer Brothers settled in Woodford to the present. A lot of the family names in the history books of sawmillers and bullock teamsters have descendants all over the country and some have shared their memories and information with us.

 The Woodford Historical Society would love to hear from others who would like to contribute to the web site, whether it be in the form of stories, photos or documents, we’d like to hear from you.
