About Us

The Gumnut Place is an independent, locally established community enterprise that has been supporting people with a disability, their families and carers, in the communities of the South Burnett for more than 30 years.

Known simply as ‘Gumnut’, this busy Australian Disability Enterprise was established in 1986 by a committed group of families and friends of people with a disability as a response to their needs.

Since then, Gumnut has been developed by the community, local businesses and Council and, from 2008, South Burnett CTC Inc. Today, Gumnut provides meaningful supported employment opportunities for 20 people with disabilities living in the South Burnett, and a further eight local people who make up their Support & Sales Team.
