With a population of about 15,000, Caboolture is a thriving urban centre serving regional banana and pineapple planters and dairy farmers, 46 kilometres north of Brisbane and just south of the Sunshine Coast.

Settled in the 1860s to service fledgling dairy and sugar cane industries, Caboolture has much to offer the visitor including many Aboriginal relics and significant sites.

The town's history is evident in the faithfully-restored homes, buildings, machinery and other relics on permanent display at the Historical Village.

A visit to the Caboolture Warplane Museum will transport you back to those magnificent young men in their flying machines, while the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology on the Old Toorbul Point Road traces 250,000 years of history.

The town is the administrative centre for the Caboolture Shire which spans a region from the mountain forests of the D'Aguilar Ranges to the golden beaches of Bribie Island.

The bridge between Greater Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, Caboolture is at the hub of a broad circle of varied tourist destinations and fascinating landmarks.

There are Sunday markets each week at the Showgrounds on Beerburrum Road and the extraordinary Abbey Museum at Ningi.

The Glasshouse Mountains, spied and named by Captain Cook as he sailed north, lie 22 kilometres to the north. Bribie Island is 25 kilometres to the east, and the popular Pumicestone Passage fishing resorts of Donnybrook and Toorbul are within half an hour’s drive.
