13 March 2018 – The Beginning

On Tuesday, 13 March 2018 we received news that the Australia signs, which were featured at Expo 88 and have been at Arethusa College Deception Bay for many years, are coming to the Caboolture Historical Village. 

Remove, transport, refurbish and display is all we have to do.  A fantastic win for our Village.

The removal and cartage of the signs to the Village as well as the restoration will be posted here and on the Village’s Facebook page.
