Woodford is a small but very pretty town, 20 minutes west of Caboolture on the D'Aguilar Highway. Noted for its wide streets, grand old hotel and colonial style shops, it was one of the earliest settled areas of the shire and its history is reflected in several noted tourist spots.

Woodford is home to one of Australia's largest collections of narrow gauge steam locos. Members of the Australian Narrow Gauge Railway Museum Society have developed a museum off Archer Street and on Sundays, volunteers run a restored steam loco through the town for visitors to enjoy.

The nearby Delaney's Creek winery just off the Mt Mee Road is the closest winery to Brisbane and is the first of a number of new wineries opening up in the region. The annual wine crush normally occurs around January but tasting and sales are available year round.

The summit of Mt Mee offers panoramic views over the Caboolture Shire to Moreton Bay. The Mt Mee state forest with its walking tracks, picnic areas and camping sites, is extremely popular. The well signed walks wind through superb sub tropical rainforest and offer spectacular views. The Storeybrook Herb and Cottage display gardens at Petersen Road Woodford, is another charming spot for visitors who can enjoy homemade Devonshire teas and a stroll through the attractive fragrant gardens.

Accommodation in the area includes a motel and bed and breakfast at nearby D'Aguilar and a bed and breakfast establishment at Storeybrook herb and gardens. Distance from Brisbane (state capital): 70 kilometres.
