About Caboolture

We agree with the locals – Caboolture is clearly the best area of South East Queensland to live in. In fact, it’s where our family business began more than 10 years ago and still where our head office is located.

With a population of around 60,000 people, Caboolture is considered by geographers to be the northernmost tip of the greater Brisbane area … and by locals to be the icing on the cake of South East Queensland living.

The name Caboolture comes from the indigenous Yugarabul dialect, and means ‘place of the carpet snake’. The local rugby union team – of which our owner Thomas Aldridge was Captain of the 2016 premiership winning team – are known as the Snakes.

Caboolture and the surrounding suburbs of Burpengary and Morayfield were long considered a stop-over region – halfway by coach between the Gympie goldfields and Brisbane’s Northside; a railway outpost since the train line opened in 1888; and a location on the Bruce Highway before recent developments redirected traffic away from the main town centre.

This belies the natural beauty and community that the Caboolture locals experience daily. Close enough to the Brisbane City for commuters, but a central location to base a life with options every weekend to explore the Sunshine Coast, head inland towards Pine Rivers and Somerset with towns like Kingaroy, Toogoolawah, Esk, Kilcoy and Woodford. And of course, Bribie Island is a stone’s throw away.

No wonder the population has doubled since 1996! (And all that new residential development has kept our termite and pest control teams busy.)
