Woodford Academy

COVID-19 continues to be a public health risk for the community, particularly for those most vulnerable to infection. The National Trust (NSW) takes our duty of care for our staff, volunteers and the community very seriously. We have closed Woodford Academy until further notice and we are assessing how we can re-open our properties and maintain safe physical distancing and infection control on site.

Please follow us on Facebook, subscribe to our eNews or monitor our online News posts for updates. We thank you in advance for your understanding that we are doing our bit to keep the community safe.

The Woodford Academy is the oldest complex of colonial buildings in the Blue Mountains and is of state heritage significance.

Built originally as an Inn in the 1830s, the property has had a multi-layered history, also operating over the years as a gentleman’s residence, guest house, boarding house and from 1907-1936 under the ownership of John McManamey as an exclusive school – Woodford Academy.

Bequested to the National Trust in 1979 by John McManamey’s sole surviving daughter Gertrude, the Woodford Academy is today a museum that offers not only a unique glimpse of colonial life in the Blue Mountains but also an insight into the current Blue Mountains community through an innovative program of site-specific art events, performances and talks for the monthly open days.
