Caboolture Visitor Information
Caboolture is an urban centre in Queensland, approximately 47.5 kilometres north of the Brisbane Central Business District. Its location in South East Queensland brings the centre close to Australia's easternmost boundaries. The name is derived from the Aboriginal word, which means "place of the carpet snake". Its estimated population of 46,882 residents over a 95.8-square-kilometre area accounts for its density.
Established in 1842, Caboolture is one of the first areas in Queensland to be opened to European settlers. Part of the Local Government Area of the Moreton Bay Region, the urban centre is divided between the state districts of Glass House, Morayfield, and Pumicestone in the Legislative Assembly of Queensland, and is represented in the Australian House of Representatives by the Federal Division of Longman.
While Caboolture is not particularly a tourism hotspot, it nonetheless has its share of attractions for locals and visitors alike to appreciate. Some of the notable sites in the urban centre include the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology, Caboolture Warplane and Flight Heritage Museum, Delaney's Creek Winery and Vineyard, Flying Fish Hovercraft, and Historical Village.
