Caboolture is situated between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, about a forty minute drive from Brisbane's CBD along the Bruce Highway. Just a few minutes south of the main business centre of Caboolture is the extensive Centenary Lakes Park.
Centenary Lakes Park and Caboolture is now a part of the Electorate of the Moreton Bay Regional Council which also includes the Redcliffe Peninsula. As a park, it includes everything anyone would wish for in any park.
Driving into the park from Morayfield Road you will probably be initially impressed by the beautiful landscaped lake with its large water jet shooting up into the sky. On the road into the park, if you have youngsters you could veer to the left and park next to the large colourful children's playground. It's a large park and there is ample parking facilities for everyone with heaps of choices of where to park your vehicle.
Facilities in the park include: undercover picnic tables, seats, electric barbecues, toilets and drinking fountains. There are numerous walking tracks which will take you over scenic bridges crossing waterways. Talking of water, wildlife abounds on and near the lake. Ducks, water hens, geese . . . , they are all there. The park also lies on the northern bank of the Caboolture River.
Within the Centenary Lakes Park are other parks including the Apex Park. It is the centre for sports lovers in the Caboolture area with two Rugby Fields, Tennis courts, Basketball courts, Netball courts, a Little Athletics Field, BMX track and a Skate bowl.
