Two-thirds of the 47,997 population live in the urban centres, and one-third in the rural areas. There are 16 townships altogether in the Shire and Picton is the administrative centre. The Shire encompasses a land area of nearly 2,600 square kilometres, of which about 90% is national park, bushland, water catchment or rural land, including gorges, ranges and plains.
Our population is predominately Australian born 83.1% and English speaking 91.2%, and our largest age groups are the 35-49 9,706, 50-59 5,910 and 5-11 4,798. The population is expected to increase at a greater rate than it has been over the next few years.
