Located a short way outside of Brisbane, Queensland’s Caboolture is home to a great beach culture and laid back lifestyle. Within easy reach of the state capital, it’s also a great base for exploring the many delights of Brisbane while staying in a quieter area. There are plenty of places to eat and drink and we have a good selection of Caboolture accommodation to suit all tastes. There is an exciting country music festival each year, which makes for tons of foot-stompin’ fun!
A major attraction in Caboolture is the Historical Village. With over 70 old buildings and a huge historical collection, it’s easy to spend hours exploring the fascinating site and taking a stroll along memory lane. Pop into Zanow’s Shed and see how early citizens used a saw mill to make their living, and check out the old Post Office, complete with all its old-fashioned equipment. There are loads of old cars in the Garage, and you can see heaps of old products from yesteryear in the Grocery Store. Visit the Police Station, School House, Morgue, Barbers, and Butchers, and take a peek into cottages, hotels, and homes from days gone by. There are displays of old farming equipment, typewriters, ships, cameras, records, newspapers … and more! Kids will love taking a ride on Thomas the Tank Engine!
The Centenary Lakes is another popular spot, ideal for relaxing and picnicking. There are plenty of birds and flowers adding to the natural beauty. Bargain hunters will enjoy the Caboolture Markets, where you will find hundreds of stalls selling goods as diverse as fresh fruit and vegetables, used items, clothes, books, and arts and crafts.
