We are Knox

Knox is a thriving, progressive municipality with great diversity and beautiful contrasts. And that’s most obvious when looking at the people that make up this city.

It’s part of Council’s role to create thriving communities. We are working for a community where everyone can participate with pride and a sense of belonging.


There are 15,000 carers in Knox who provide unpaid care for a person with a disability. 1 in 8 carers are employees.

Carers need support, find out what assistance is available.

People with mental health issues

Around 20 percent of the Knox population, that's more than 32,000 residents, had at least one mental or behavioural condition in 2017-18.

If you, or someone you know, needs support, find out what assistance is available.

Residents living with disability

28,000 people in Knox live with a disability. That’s 17 percent of us. About one third of these people have a profound or severe limitation.
