With waterfalls, creeks and lush greenery, Samford is a semi-rural escape 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD. Made up of Samford Village and Samford Valley, it is home to families, couples and professionals who love the peace and quiet that comes with being surrounded by nature.
The area has a thriving café scene, as well as historical buildings, restaurants, boutique shops, and medical clinics. Samford Central Shopping Village caters to most needs, and Samford Valley Hotel is an entertainment destination. The Samford Show attracts visitors from all over each year.
The parklands are ideal for cyclists, swimmers, runners and children, and there are many sporting clubs in the area, including a pony club. John Scott Park is the most central park, featuring a playground, BBQ facilities, and an art gallery, while Samford Regional Park is a popular spot for bushwalking and picnics. Baden Powell Park offers abseiling, walking trails and conference facilities.
There are two local schools, Samford State School and Samford Valley Steiner School, and more options in neighbouring areas – some of which provide buses to and from Samford. As for transport, bus services run through the suburb, and the nearest train station is 10 minutes away at Ferny Grove.
The Samford property market is strong. Along with small acreage lots (up to five acres), there are large blocks and subdivisions available. For those looking to move straight in, the suburb boasts traditional and more contemporary homes, most of which have plenty of land for the kids to enjoy.
