Tell me more: A really nice spot for the kids to connect with Queensland's heritage is Caboolture Historical Village. The village has a number of original buildings on site, heaps of vintage vehicles and memorabilia and plenty of planned activities for school holiday fun! We went along for the school holiday activities to check out what they had on offer! The little ones had a great time getting involved in the art and craft programs, marvelled at the blacksmith displays and really enjoyed the period games! The volunteers had a wealth of information and really engaged with all of the kids! But by far the most popular aspect of the village (at least for our kids) was the miniature train ride! We love to think what must be going through the little ones' minds as they see all of the displays!
