Our community

​Our community consists of a number of diverse groups including nuclear families, single supporting parents, unemployed, a growing group of low density unit dwellers, first home buyers, pensioner housing, government housing and a large population of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.

Of the 2,490 residents living in Garbutt, 14% are over 65 years of age and 21% are under 15 years of age. Of the population eligible for employment 40% are employed in a diverse range of jobs from white collar to blue collar.

The majority of the students enrolled at Garbutt State School live in the suburb of Garbutt with a few from nearby suburbs. Some students come here because other relatives are enrolled or parents were past students.
