Geography[edit]

Kagaru's eastern border is marked by the Sydney–Brisbane rail corridor, the Logan River and Teviot Brook. There is very little development in the area.

History[edit]

In the 1930s, a railway station in the area was named Kagaru, a Ugarapul word for the blue-winged kookaburra. In 1996, the locality was formally bounded and took the name of the railway station.[4]

Formerly in the Shire of Beaudesert, Kagaru became split between Logan City and Scenic Rim Region following the local government amalgamations in March 2008.[4]

In the 2016 census, Kagaru had a population of 13 people. The locality contains 6 households, in which 45.0% of the population are males and 55.0% of the population are females with a median age of 57, 19 years above the national average.
