History in the making! The Caboolture Historical Village is helping to preserve the stories of our pioneers from settlement to now. Through a remarkable range of exhibits the Village provides an insight to their homes, workplaces and community lives. It also increasingly focuses on the often ingenious contribution they made to creating a better future for themselves and ultimately us.It's interesting just to walk around the Village, which is made up of more than 70 buildings, with streets, gardens and a train station. It really creates an authentic sense of our past. The entire complex is run by an enthusiastic and dedicated band of volunteers and staff who operate the village 7 days a week.

Overseas visitors will particularly enjoy our selection of traditional morning teas and lunches. For school visits the variety and breadth of our collections provide a fascinating look at the development of Australia's early lifestyle, communications, transport and industry. School visits are made even more memorable by the hands-on activities demonstrating the way things were done. Group Tours by special arrangement, the Village can provide guides for group tours. For your special function filled with character, a licensed 'old world' pub and the authentic 'Stanmore Hall' are available for hire.
