With the Sunshine Coast just to the north and Brisbane to its south, Caboolture, Brisbane’s northern-most suburb, is now one of the state’s biggest growth centres.
This once sleepy town popular with farmers and retirees, has experienced amazing growth over the last 40 years. It has a city train line that makes commuting to Brisbane a breeze and a second railway line that links to Gympie and Nambour, making Caboolture an easy to access hot spot.
Businesses have been quick to jump on board and be part of Cabooluture’s growing action, with many shopping complexes, homemaker centres and hardware stores setting up shop in its outer-suburbs.
Whilst the city centre is still relatively modest with the typical shops, council buildings and town square. The larger shopping centres are positioned just out of town in Morayfield, which also houses the industrial area.
You’ll find many wonderful ways to kick-back with lots of things to do in Caboolutre. Taste test homemade jams at the Country Markets, soak up the past in the Caboolture Historical Village, stop by the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology, take a drive to the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains, or take advantage of Moreton Bay’s great boating and fishing activities, or the magnificent surf beaches of the Sunshine Coast.
With families flocking to the area, schools and family friendly facilities are high in demand with schools, day care centres and more being added to developing parts of the area and surrounding areas to keep up with demand.
Caboolture has seen a growth in affordable housing which brings with it more investors and families.
Single storey brick homes and fibro homes dominate the landscape, but you can still find a lovely classic timber Queenslander sprinkled here and there reflecting the days gone past.
Caboolture is a regional transport hub. With connections across the Great Dividing Range via the D'Aguilar Highway, easy highway access to Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast via the Bruce Highway and railways, and the Bribie Island Road to Bribie Island, it is a focal point for road traffic
Caboolture's railway station is the terminus for QR Citytrain's Caboolture railway line, as well as being a major stop on the North Coast railway line. Citytrain operates regular services to Brisbane, in addition to interurban services to Nambour and Gympie.
The area is serviced by Caboolture Bus Lines and the larger Kangaroo Bus Lines.
