Caboolture Historical Village

Talk a stroll down memory lane at the Caboolture Historical Village just north of Caboolture on the old Bruce Highway.

The Historical Village is situated on 4 hectares and is listed as the Number One Tourist destination in the region with over 70 buildings, and more than 110,000 museum pieces. Visitors are able to walk through the visitors centre and step out into a Village of yesteryear.

The street with the old post office, barber, butcher and general store will bring back memories for many, however there is much more including an exhibition from the Queensland Prison’s Museum, the old Caboolture Hospital, several cottages that were moved from various sites around Caboolture, the old Caboolture Railway Station, and a popular exhibit with models of ships from the First Fleet to arrive in Sydney in 1788.

A great history lesson for the children! During school holidays, children are entertained by a variety of activities and opportunities to explore within the Village. Special events are held throughout the year.

You are welcome to bring your own picnic lunch and sit around the lawns, or at a picnic table, or you can eat at either the Redhall Cafe or the Boiling Billy Tea Room.
