Nestled in the southeast of the neighbourhood is Samford Village which everything you need from an inner-Brisbane suburb. Main Street runs through the centre of town, home to intimate cafés and restaurants, grocery stores and the local pub. In this central area, the historical museum and other iconic heritage landmarks speak to of the district's rich history.

With no shortage of fresh produce, the monthly Samford Valley Markets offer a wide range of locally-grown produce, tasty treats and handmade goods, while the beloved Samford pub, with its beer garden, pavilion restaurant and children's playground is a popular haunt. 

Large residential properties surround the heart of the village. You'll find generous hobby farms behind picket fences, horse-riding facilities and manicured green spaces. Samford is the place to go to for a taste of country living.
