Overview
More
The Caboolture Historical Village is situated on 4 hectares (about 12 acres) of land just north of Caboolture town centre on the old Bruce Highway. It is listed as the Number One Tourist destination in the region. The dream of preserving our local heritage started with the formation of the Caboolture Historical Society in 1959. The first building arrived 20 years later when the old Caboolture Shire Council Chambers was moved to the site. Since that time with the contribution of many volunteers and supporters, the Village has grown to be the popular destination for tourists and locals to explore the local history.

You won't be disappointed, pick a fine day, lots to see, would be a great wedding venue. Next door to Showgrounds, plenty of parking, not on Sunday's though as markets are on that day which attract huge crowds.
