The City of Caboolture is located 43 km north of Brisbane. The name Caboolture is taken from the name of the bay where the Caboolture River flows. Caboolture became the first residential area in 1842. At that time, the land around the Moreton Bay penal colony was opened to become a residence for free settlers. The area around the Caboolture river is called Kabul-tour by Aboriginal Brisbane. Kabul-tour means the place of the carpet snakes because many of these reptiles are found in the area. The wood pickers bring their wood by floating red cedar wood in the river. After settlers arrived, the settlers also transported their supplies in the same way. In the mid-1860s local pastoralists began experimenting with sugar cane and cotton. And in 1867, a small settlement was established. The settlement functions as a supply and trade center for settlers and serves the needs of miners who are trekking from Brisbane to the goldfields near Gympie. In 1879 the local Shire was formed and in 1888 a railroad line from Brisbane was opened. The first city to be established there was Upper Caboolture.
