Kagaru is a rural locality split between City of Logan and Scenic Rim Region, Queensland, Australia.[1][2]


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.


In the 1930s, a railway station in the area was named Kagaru, an Aboriginal word for the blue-winged kookaburra. In 1996, the locality was formally bounded and took the name of the railway station.[3]

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