About Upper Caboolture

Upper Caboolture is mainly a rural/residential district but with a suburban area on its eastern boundary and is immediately west of Morayfield. This quiet suburb is close to everything but away from the hustle and bustle of busier suburbs.

For the best bushwalking in Upper Caboolture head to Sheep Station Creek.

Protected since 1977, Sheep Station Creek Conservation Park offers walkers and horse riders a quiet and easy escape into nature. The bushland reserve is abundant in wildlife including different species of birds, reptiles, butterflies, marsupials and mammals, its open, grassy forests providing an ideal habitat for the resident koala, wallaby, short-beaked echidna, and locally threatened Greater Glider families.

History of Upper Caboolture

A settlement at Upper Caboolture predated the survey of the Caboolture township in 1869.

The post office directory in 1915 recorded a mail contractor, four timber getters and several farmers (mainly dairy) at Upper Caboolture. By 1949 the directory recorded more farmers, 23 of whom were in dairying and 14 who grew bananas.

Formerly a rural area on the fringe of the town of Caboolture, since the 1990s the Upper Caboolture has become increasingly urbanised.
