The name Neranwood is a contraction of the name of the Nerang Hardwood Company which established a sawmill in the area in 1923.
A private tramway was built to transport the timber from the sawmill to the railway siding at Mudgeeraba. It had two locomotives called Alison and Kathleen. However, the project was not economically viable and the sawmill and tramway closed in 1928. Local people used the tramway sleepers for firewood.
A telephone and telegraph office was established in 1924.
