If you’re a keen shopper, you’ll be pleased to know that North Harbour is well located for all the major shops, outlets and stores such as supermarkets and clothing retailers plus Costco, IKEA, Spotlight, Bunnings, BCF and so on within a 10-15 minute radius. But sometimes, you want something a little bit special and unique, and to support local, so we’ve put together a list of our must-visit Burpengary shops and shopping opportunities for your perusal.
Art and crafts: Our community partners, The Artisan’s Guild of Caboolture and District, is located on the corner of Old Bay Road and Maitland Street in Burpengary East. This beautiful space offers plenty of art and craft to enjoy in the gallery, as well as opportunities to purchase original works at very reasonable prices. This is a great place to find unique gifts, all created by the wonderful members of the Guild. The team also displays their work at shopping centres around Moreton Bay, so keep an eye out for these shopping opportunities when you’re out and about to grab yourself a one of a kind bargain.
And, if you have an interest in creating your own pieces, you can take classes or join the Guild yourself! For more information, find the team on Facebook.
Plants: Whether you’re a keen gardener, avid pot plant owner, or wanting something for your window sill, CREEC (the Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre) is well worth a visit. CREEC is situated across a stunning 18 hectares of parklands and open space next to Burpengary Creek. On site is an administration building with auditorium, a community nursery which is a great place to buy your own seedlings and plants, playgrounds, BBQ, walking and interpretive trails. It is located approximately 40 km north of Brisbane on Rowley Road at Burpengary and is definitely one of the very best things to do in Burpengary.

Markets: Burpengary Market is a weekly market selling everything from fruit and vegetables to pet products, hand crafted items, fresh donuts, Tupperware, locally roasted coffee and (our absolute favourite) special roasted chilli coffee, giftware, candles, special products and creations and so much more.
