Due to the Coronavirus pandemic restrictions, the planned launch of the book on May 2nd has been postponed until about October(hopefully).

Woodvale-A Step Back In Time, is a recently published 250 page book, written by Ray Wallace, a local historian. It outlines Woodvale’s history from our beginnings as Nerring, to Sydney Flat to Woodvale, as we are now known. It captures life in many eras, before it is lost forever, and includes the squatters, gold rush period and over 20 settler families. It  paints a picture of how they lived, worked and played and the organisations they supported  to enrich their lives. 144 photos are included The organisations are covered from their beginnings up until the present day. Tales of crime and punishment, natural disasters and personal tragedies add special insights into our story.

     Ray Wallace has agreed to the Woodvale Progress Association selling the book now, rather than waiting until  later in the year.
