COVID-19 UPDATE: Woodford Academy will be closed until further notice. Thank you for your patience as we prepare to reopen safely.

History of Woodford Academy

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.

Bequeathed 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.
