Builders Woodford – Custom Homes & Renovations
Do you like small, pretty towns? And how about trains? Woodford is in timber and dairy country, and has one of the best collections of narrow gauge steam locomotives in Australia. In fact, every second Sunday volunteers from The Australian Narrow Gauge Railway Museum drive an authentic restored steam train right through the town. Nearby Mount Mee has walking trails across the rainforest, and lots of picnic areas and camping sites — and, of course, sweeping, scenic views.
“Our vision of inclusive and creative community, culture and tradition passed through generations, expressed through story and ceremony”
Best of all, from after Christmas to the New Year, for the past 30 years Woodford has held a Folk Festival. This year over 2,000 artists will participate and the audience will be well over100,000. Woodford’s streets will be lined with open-air restaurants and cafés, stalls and bars. There will be street theatre, circus performances and parades. It’s a fabulously imaginative festival, with everything from concerts and dances to workshops and a film festival. At midnight on New Year’s Eve there is a tradition of a three-minute candle-lit silence followed by a Sunrise Ceremony of Tibetan chants on the Woodfordia hilltop.
“Each year construction begins in early December and continues up until Christmas Day. Over 450 contractors and volunteers build the village. Many come from around the world to be part of the festival build and then stay for a week after to pull the event down.”
