The Caboolture Historical Village is a wonderful attraction with a massive collection of over 100,000 historical items restored and displayed within more than 70 buildings in a pioneer village setting covering 12 acres.

Train rides for the kids; historic homes and furnishings for Mum; antique machinery, cars and tractors for Dad; a rainforest garden for keen horticulturalists and hours of reminiscing for older generations. See demonstrations of historical skills such as the village blacksmith, wood crafting and others. Wash this down with refreshments from the modern cafe, old fashioned tea rooms or bring a picnic and the Village is a wonderful budget day out only 50 minutes from Brisbane. The perfect stopover on the way to the Sunshine Coast.
