The vast History of Moreton Bay region

From the rich yet quiet history of Caboolture, dairy farming, timber cutting and banana cultivation in the Moreton Bay Hinterland towns of Samford, Woodford, and Dayboro, to Queensland’s first settlement city in Redcliffe and the indigenous significance of Bribie Island, Moreton Bay region has a vast history.

Discover all of this and more through the region's many museums, historic sites and heritage trails - and don't go past a guided heritage walk and talk tour with our Visitor Information Centre volunteers!
