Woodford - Culture and History

Woodford
Small and quiet township in the Blue Mountains
Woodford is located 84 km from Sydney. While building the first road across the Blue Mountains, William Cox placed a marker peg near the site of the present-day Woodford railway station in 1814. He named it 'Twenty Mile Hollow' as it was located about twenty miles from the river crossing at Emu Plains and the locality retained this title until 1871. It initially served as a reserve for traveling stock owing to its good supply of water.

Mount Wilson - Fast Facts

Mount Wilson
Gracious and elegant village in the Blue Mountains famous for its gardens.
Mount Wilson is located 8 km north of Bell's Line of Road and 126 km west of Sydney. It is a charming and gracious village with many beautiful cold climate gardens nestled in the Australian bush. This small village is famous today for the fact that between 1912 and 1937 Patrick White's parents lived in a house called Withycombe (it still stands and is located on the corner of The Avenue and Church Avenue). In his book Flaws in the Glass White recalled his time at Mount Wilson in terms of 'gullies crackling with smoky silence, rocks threatening to explode, pools so cold that the breath was cut off inside your ribs as you hung suspended like the corpse of a pale frog.'
