History[edit]

Wolffdene State School opened about 1 January 1892 and closed on 31 August 1942.[3]

Proposed dam[edit]

In 1989, the Goss Government rejected a proposal to build Wolffdene Dam on the Albert River. Later, a dam near Glendower Homestead was once planned in a Queensland Government water strategy report from 1990. The option was discarded after it was revealed the site was too costly to build a dam for the amount of water it would have provided.[4]
