History of Samford

Samford's very first inhabitants were an aboriginal tribe which belonged to the Waka language group, whose territory also included the upper Brisbane River and the South Burnett.

Being in a relatively secluded valley, the Samford area was not settled by Europeans until 1855 when the Samford pastoral run was taken up. Parts of the run, particularly fertile river flats, were subject to closer settlement in the late 1860s, and a primary school was opened in 1872. The Samford Range and Mount Nebo were harvested for cedar and hoop pine and the cleared land was used for dairying.
