Eating in the Village:  WEEKENDS
One of the effects of Covid 19 is that we have low volunteer staffing numbers and are unable to open our cafes on weekends.  The Village therefore is offering visitors the ability to go outside the Village and return to complete their visit.  

Visitors are also able to bring picnic lunches on any day of the week. We have plenty of covered areas for you to sit and eat.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be COVID-19 requirements in place eg: cleaning hands and sanitising on entry/exit; social distancing; visitor numbers and record keeping for contact tracing.

The Caboolture Historical Village, 280 Beerburrum Road, is situated on 4 hectares (about 12 acres) of land just north of the Caboolture town centre.  The Village is listed as one of the top tourist destinations in the region.

The dream of preserving our local heritage started with the formation of the Caboolture Historical Society in 1957. 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.

It is the largest tourist attraction in the region, with over 70 buildings, and more than 110,000 museum pieces. Visitors 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.

The Bird & Poultry Museum (Feather Clubs Association of Qld Inc) is the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and opposite the Military Museum is a memorial to the animals and birds lost in wars – one of the first such memorials in Australia.
