Mr William Geddes ‘Lord of Caboolture’ and the first Postmaster has returned to the same Post Office building where he worked back in 1869. The Caboolture Historical Village created a full-size ‘life-like’ hologram of Mr Geddes who welcomes visitors and talks about how he and his family risked the dangerous journey from Manchester in England and ended up following the gold diggers, who were on their way to the Gympie gold fields hoping to make their fortunes. Mr Geddes and his family got as far as Caboolture, where he established a store, a hotel, and eventually owning vast swathes of the local area, hence he became known as ‘the Lord of Caboolture’.
