Apart from Blue Mountains Journeys, I have two previous published histories on the Blue Mountains community: the National Trust award-winning Hazelbrook and Woodford: a story of two Blue Mountains towns and Mountains Springtime: a History of Blue Mountains Grammar School.
I have had a long association with the Blue Mountains, beginning with regular family holidays as a child. My wife and I bought a cottage in the lower mountains at Springwood in 1961.
Hazelbrook & Woodford
Perched on a narrow spine that provides a vital east-west link above the surrounding green wilderness, Hazelbrook and Woodford are the inheritors of a rich natural and human history. A breathtaking backdrop of old rocks and biodiversity has been the dramatic setting for Aboriginal and European settlement and history.
