New Display to Celebrate Anzac Day

April 20, 2015

The VISITOR INFORMATION CENTRE will be open on Anzac Day from 1 pm to 4 pm.

 

Our Village Curators have been busy creating a new display in the foyer/Visitor Information Centre to celebrate Anzac Day.  The Village will be closed on Anzac Day (Saturday April 25th), and will have a display on Anzac Day at the Caboolture Hub, where there will be a major event to recognise Anzac Day.

There is plenty of memorabilia in the Village – with the 11th Light Horse Museum’s display and other items around the Village.

From the Light Horse entry.

The Military Museum for the 11th Light Horse Caboolture Troop was formed in 1989 from a group of enthusiastic military history buffs and horse owners. The Museum preserves and displays artifacts and photographic memorabilia from all branches and periods of military service.

In 1992 an understanding was reached with the Caboolture Historical Society to build a small but significant military museum within the grounds of the Caboolture Historical village.

Since the 1860’s many young Australians have been introduced to military life and undergone military training in the navy, army & air force cadets.

Until recently there were not any organisations in Australia that catered for former cadets. In a first for Australia and in addition to its normal activities, the museum decided to extend its focus and now includes former navy, army and air force cadets in its membership. Former cadets are invited to join the 11th Light Horse Caboolture Military Museum.

Membership is $20 pa and benefits are numerous.
