Woodford

Known in the early days as “20 Mile Hollow”, the area boasted a popular Coaching Inn – the Woodman’s Inn – built in 1834. It was sold to Michael Hogan in 1836 who rebuilt the inn and renamed it ‘Kings Arms Hotel’. When William Buss became the proprietor in 1856 both the inn and locality became known as Buss’s. A railway platform opened in 1869, also took that name. When the inn closed, it became a private residence and was called by its owner Woodford House. By 1871, the locality had also become known as Woodford. The house later became the well-known Woodford Academy, a school for boys.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
