Never has 40 minutes made such a difference to the feel of a location. Although it is only 40 minutes drive away from Brisbane, Caboolture is a world apart in terms of its mood and attractions. If a hire car in Brisbane gives you access to the thumping urbanity of the capital city, then renting a car in Caboolture will take you into the serenity of an untouched natural environment. In the immediate township itself is a range of beaches, mountains and quaint villages, as well as the international-quality Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology, hosting a range of artefacts and art from over 250,000 years ago. Furthermore, a drive to protected areas like Woodford and Mount Mee showcase the natural splendour of the region.

Where Caboolture really comes into its own however is when you rent a car and take the short drive to reach Bribie Island. Experience the remarkable and unique Pumicestone Passage - a 35 kilometre channel formed between the mainland and the Island in which a host of wildlife live and breed including tortoises, dugongs, dolphins and an array of birds. Across on Bribie Island itself, enjoy the excellent fishing waters, surf beaches and national parks which are perfect for a long walk and a picnic.
If you have a change of heart and desire some time in the cityscape or some action at the fun parks, a day trip to the Gold Coast will only take about 1-1.5 hours.
