The idea for this historical and important museum came from a group of enthusiastic military history buffs and horse owners who then formed the 11th Light Horse Caboolture Troop and Military Museum in 1989.
Then in 1992, an understanding was reached with the Caboolture Historical Society to build a smaller museum within the grounds.
It was officially opened on Anzac Day 1992 and has remained a popular spot for locals and visitors for three decades.
The Troop can often be found at Anzac Day Parades around South East Queensland, and provides school talks plus uniformed and horse demonstrations to many youngsters, ensuring the next generation knows the sacrifices that were made by our brave men and women.
The museum is open daily from 9am-4pm, but is unattended except on special occasions and for Tours.
Entry is free once the entry fee for the Village has been paid.
Caboolture Regional Art Gallery is a modern exhibition space, featuring a diversity of exhibitions throughout the year.
