Caboolture caravan, camping and visitor information.

Caboolture is located 43km north of Brisbane on the Bruce Highway. It is in the Moreton Bay Region of South East Queensland. The town is often considered to be the northern most urban area of the greater Brisbane region. The name arose from the bay into which the Caboolture River runs. It comes from an Aboriginal term referring to the place of the carpet snake.

Things to See and Do

A reminder of the area’s rural origins are on display at the Historical Village. Many restored historical buildings from around the shire are located here and are filled with artifacts from times gone by. Similarly take another step back in time at the world famous Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology and learn about the way people lived in medieval times. The Caboolture Warplane and Flight museum is another must see visit while in the area. They bring aviation history to life with vintage planes restored to flying condition.
Visit one of the many farms in the area who sell their produce directly to the public and, at certain times of the year, pick your own strawberries straight from the field. Of course animal lovers are catered for too. Visit White Ridge Farm where you can get up close and personal with goats, sheep, ducks and more! With mini golf, an adventure playground and fossil digs there are lots activities that the whole family can enjoy.

With so much on offer, a visit to Caboolture will not disappoint!
