Caboolture Winter Events

Abbey Medieval Festival

Abbey Medieval Festival is the largest and most authentic medieval re-enactment in the southern hemisphere, and it’s happening again this July. Those looking to go back to the Dark Ages (and no, we don’t mean the energy crisis down south) will enjoy the recreated village experience. Dark Ages not your thing? Try dipping your toes into the Crusades, Viking raids, or the lives of the Ottoman Turks. With traditional music, activities, food, and more, Abbey Medieval Festival is a great way to dive into history while keeping your modern creature comforts.

Caboolture Festival

For the month of August Caboolture will be a hive of activity as Caboolture Festival returns to town. During August a number of events will bring live music, entertainment, family fun, foodie delights and something for all ages to the region. Find out more about Caboolture Festival here.

Bonfire Night

Keen to travel a little further afield? Try Bonfire Night at Sandstone Point Hotel. This local marvel of pyrotechnics offers great live music, local food and produce sold from many stalls, a fireworks display, and of course the famous bonfire. Sandstone Point Hotel’s annual Bonfire Night gets bigger, better, and warmer every year, so make sure to put it on your winter bucket list.
