Area: Settled in 1875, Woodsdale was named by the then inspector of roads Mr. N.A. Woods, who laid out the road from Whitefoord to Buckland.
Free settlers in the 1860s to 1890's took-up land grants in the area and transformed the area into the one of the best mixed farming area in the Oatlands district. Similar activities are maintained to this present day in the district with beef, lamb and forestry as the main agricultural pursuits. Australia Post collection is available at nearby Buckland.
This property is 15-minutes drive to Buckland, 30-minutes drive to the East Coast holiday township of Orford and a little over one hour to the Hobart CBD (via Tasman Highway).
