The Gabba Ward

The Gabba Ward comprises the suburbs of Kangaroo Point, Dutton Park, West End, Highgate Hill, South Brisbane and the western side of Woolloongabba. After the 2020 council election, the boundaries of The Gabba Ward were redrawn, and the suburb of East Brisbane and the Buranda side of Woolloongabba shifted into the Coorparoo Ward.

Demographically, The Gabba Ward is one of Brisbane's youngest and most culturally diverse parts of the city, with a high population of renters. The Gabba Ward is also home to a diverse group of residents, including professionals, families, older empty nesters, artists and students alike.

Known for its unique character suburbs, culture and riverside parks, The Gabba Ward is home to state-wide cultural and arts institutions and independent creator hubs.

The Gabba Ward is also one of the fastest-growing parts of South-East Queensland and has experienced a wave of rapid high-density development.
