Caboolture is an outlying suburb of Brisbane, Queensland. The suburb is more than 43 km from the central business district of the metropolitan city. The population of Caboolture was about 47,000, in June 2010. Originally home to the Kabi Aborigines, the name “kabultur” is from the Yugarabul dialect and means “place of the carpet snake.” The Kabi were hunter/gatherers and fishermen, moving from place to place to take seasonal advantage of food supplies. The Kabi held a festival each March to celebrate the Bunya pine nuts, a staple of their diet and a nutritious food source. Neighbouring clans, invited to the festival, would participate in arranging marriages at this celebration. In the mid 19th century, pastoralists came into the area, and began experimenting with sugar cane and cotton growing. A settlement was needed to service miners traveling between Brisbane and the Gympie goldfields. Timbergetters took full advantage of the red cedar, so valuable at one time, and now so rare. The huge logs were floated down to Deception Bay, via the Caboolture River. From there, they were sent to Brisbane by steamer. Settlers made full use of the abundant timber that wasn’t exported. Today, the Queensland State Equestrian Centre is in Caboolture.
