Chris Parr got the idea of face-lifting a railway station whilst travelling to & from work. His opportunity came in 1996, when he was appointed Station Manager at Woodford. 

He set about digging up the weed-infested garden beds, & soon local residents were donating cuttings & seedlings. Working with a near-zero budget, he has transformed Woodford into what the locals claim is the best looking station in the Mountains. It also offers a first-class view over the Grose Valley to Mt Tomah.

The town was named after Hazelbrook House, built in the 1870s by Bronte Noelle. The name Hazelbrook was adopted in 1884 when the railway station was opened opposite the home. Hazelbrook House no longer exists but Selwood House is a heritage-listed building in the nearby vicinity and now houses a science museum. Other attractions in the area include Terrace Falls, Victor Falls and Bedford Pool on the south side of the village, plus Lyre Bird Glen, Oaklands Falls and Burgess Falls on the north side.
