Discover Your Local Caboolture Shire Area
Venture 44 kilometres north of Brisbane’s CBD and discover the gateway to the Sunshine Coast. Caboolture boasts a unique country life charm, made even more impressive by its short distance from the heart of Brisbane and the pristine beaches on the nearby east coast. White sandy beaches, historic villages and spectacular mountain scenery are just a few of the gems that you’ll find in Caboolture.
Just north of Caboolture’s town centre lies the number one tourist destination in the region, the Caboolture Historical Village. Step back in time as you wander the streets lined with old post offices, barbers, butchers, schools and general stores. Over 70 buildings make up the village of yesteryear, with more than 100,000 museum pieces giving it a uniquely authentic atmosphere. Take a guided walk and delve into our rich past, or hold your next event at the Village Hotel for an old-fashioned bush pub experience! If you’re still in the mood for a bit of history, make your way to the Caboolture Warplane Museum and experience the myriad of displays, exhibitions, memorabilia and wartime aircrafts that are held there.
