Woodford is a township in the Western District of Victoria, Australia. located 9 kilometres (6 mi) north of Warrnambool. At the 2006 census, the population of the combined area was 479.[1]
The town is home to Woodford Primary School. The school opened on the midnight of 30 April and 1 May 1854.[2] Back then, the school was small; it was relocated to the hill further north 100 years after its opening.[citation needed] In late August 2001, the bottom flat was flooded after heavy rain. The school closed the day afterwards before re-opening after the water receded.[citation needed]
Woodford Post Office opened on 1 January 1854, and closed sometime in 1975.[3]
Other buildings of interest include the church and a former art gallery. The town is joined with nearby Bushfield to make Woodford-Bushfield.
Woodford has a horse racing club, the Woodford Racing Club, which holds the Woodford Cup meeting on 31 December at Warrnambool racecourse.

Why do they hold their Cup at Warrnambool?

I'm going to the Blue Mountains in a few weeks, I'll ask them.

Off to the Blue Mountains now eh? Thought you'd be sick of travelling after 6 months on the road. Now you want to see the boring old Blue Mountains! Btw who exactly in Woodford will you ask?

They'll probably tell you there's no racetrack in the Blue Mountains. There used to be a trotting track. Which was also a speedway. And another car racing track. Can't remember what it's called. It's on YT.
