Garfield recorded a population of 1,786 at the 2016 Census.HistoryThe area was originally called Cannibal Creek, but was renamed to Garfield in memory of the USA President James Garfield.The Post Office opened as Cannibal Creek on 1 May 1886 and was renamed Garfield in 1887.Garfield filmedIn the late 1980s the appearance of the town was transformed for the cameras to look like the 1960s in a television miniseries on aboriginal boxer, Lionel Rose, who was raised in the region in Jacksons Track, near Drouin. Some shop fronts were restored and the main street of the town was filled with old cars to recreate the era.
