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.

My daughter and I were in Caboolture for a few days and decided to check out this quaint little place. The price was very reasonable and we spent two hours exploring! It was very well laid out and very interesting. Plenty of photo opportunities also....More

Great place to go if you want to do something special on Australia Day with the family. The historical village has a website where you can check out their programme. There is no entry fee for children under 16, so it is very affordable.
