Once Country, now Caboolture is a Suburb

Due to the northern sprawl of Greater Brisbane, Caboolture is now considered the northernmost limit to the city. Thanks to the regular fast train service to the state capital, it has become an important commuter township.

The local economy is based on tourism, retirement and the surrounding rural service industries. These include mixed farming, timber, cattle and tropical fruit.

It is thought the name Caboolture arose from the bay into which the Caboolture River runs. The bay was named by John Dunmore Lang in 1848. The name was derived from an Aboriginal expression referring to the place of the carpet snake.
