[From the sign at the cemetery]
Caboolture historic site - Toorbul Cemetery Reserve
This area was set aside as a cemetery reserve on 30 May 1891, following a request to the state government from the local Toorbul Community.

Members of the local community became trustees for the reserve until 1978, when the reserve was placed under the jurisdiction of the Caboolture Shire Council.

The cemetery contains thirteen graves, although only two graves are now visible. The first burial here was as early as 1879.

Graves contained in the Toorbul cemetery reserve belong to members of the early Eurpoean families who settled in the area. Descendents of these families still reside within the Caboolture shire.

Those laid to rest here are :
