Transport Connections to Brisbane
Caboolture is a part and the most northern tip of the greater Brisbane metropolitan area, within the bounds of South East Queensland. The Brisbane suburban commuter railway service (from Central Station) goes along the north coast and ends at the Caboolture train station. The journey takes approximately 50 minutes and underlines why Caboolture is an important commuter township.
Traditional home to the indigenous Kabi Kabi people, the name Caboolture is derived from the Kabi Kabi named Kabultur meaning “place of the carpet snake”. The spelling Caboolture was first used in 1848. Today, ‘Cabo’ is the more modern term of endearment.
First settled by Europeans in 1841 – initially the Archer brothers near Woodford – the mid-1860s saw timber cutters, cattle grazers along with the farming of sugar cane, wheat, corn and cotton. By 1867 a small colony had formed, supporting the farmers. With the following discovery of gold at Gympie, Caboolture became a landing place for miners heading to the goldfields. Cobb & Co coach services used the town as a stopover in 1868 and in 1888, the railway line from Brisbane was established. The electrified line in 1970 gave rise to the huge number of commuter residents evident now. Today, timber is still milled, vegetables and fruit – especially strawberries – grown and dairy/stud beef cattle are raised.
Here’s an interesting fact you may not know! During World War 2 (1944-45) Caboolture served as the secret headquarters for the Allied High Command in the Pacific.
Caboolture is well served with the usual amenities in terms of education and health, both public and private. There is a library, and places of worship. Even one of the oldest sectors of the Qld Country Women’s Association (commencing in 1929) is located here!
The Central Lakes Shopping Village and Heritage Plaza Shopping Centre offer the usual variety of stores to cater to your shopping needs in Cabo. The Centenary Lakes Dog Park is a popular spot. It offers not only beautiful grassy areas to play with your dog off-leash but also has a picnic area.
