Chatsworth QLD


Postcode: 4570

Chatsworth lies about 7 kilometres north of Gympie, Queensland, Australia.

The district used to be a dairy farming region, but these days it is predominantly used for residential acreage. There is a small primary/elementary school servicing the district.

The division of Chatsworth is a Queensland Legislative Assembly electoral district in Brisbane in the Australian state of Queensland. The electorate is centred on the south-eastern suburbs of Brisbane and stretches north to Lytton, west to Carina and south to Bulimba Creek.

Chatsworth State School is situated on the Bruce Highway, 8km north of Gympie in South East Queensland. The school itself is perched on top of a hill in the picturesque Chatsworth area with views that are outstanding.

It is regarded as a ‘city fringe’ school, which services fourteen (14) different local communities ranging from semi-urban to rural in nature. The area is extremely popular which has led to increased prices and for the moment a slowing of the influx of young families. Prior to this time there had been a large degree of transience evident in the school’s population but this too is starting to slow. We look forward to a long term steady and sustainable growth.
