Australia is a nation of rich history. An immigrant, settler country, the remnants of the past are literally all around you. In the faces of your neighbours to the buildings and homes which surround you, there's a story to tell wherever you go.
This is no less the case than in Caboolture, where the local Historical Village provides not only a day (at least!) of wholesome fun and entertainment, but lets you get in touch with the roots and heritage of Australia.
With a piece of Caboolture real estate in your back pocket, you can never complain about having nothing to do. The Village organises a variety of events every year for a bunch of different occasions, from International Women's Day and National Flag Day to this year's ANZAC Centenary Celebration.
Many schools visit the village every year to learn of its history – and they have a good time doing it! The activities involve learning about how technological changes are continuously altering daily life, as well as a demonstration of blacksmithing and train rides around the facility.
And whether there's a special event scheduled or not, you're always welcome to pop by and see the village's collection of 110,000 historical items, including its over 200-year old toffee cutting machine. You'd best finish reading this and bust out the local listings!
