Caboolture is a railway station and terminus of the Caboolture Line and serves as a stop for Traveltrain services. It is part of the Queensland Rail City network.

The station is in Zone 8 of the TransLink integrated public transport system.

This station is the main rail/bus interchange for TransLink's Northern Region and is served by bus connections to the surrounding areas of Caboolture. It is also the southern terminus for the off-peak Nambour-Caboolture railbus, which operates in addition to the Nambour train service in the off-peak. An old spur to the north-west to Wamuran is now disused, as is an old turntable on the eastern side.

The station was opened in June 1889, as part of the extension of the North Coast Line from Petrie, which opened in March 1888. It was later reconstructed as part of the electrification of the rail network in 1986.[1]
