I've got friends who are in the zone for Hurstville but attend my children's school.
The NAPLAN scores at Hurstville would be because the kids are all at tutoring being trained how to sit NAPLAN and selective high school tests.
I'm not saying that the teachers aren't great or anything, but they certainly have a head start on many other schools because of that but I also know that they focus a lot on literacy and numeracy.
My friend's son started kindy there this year. She's a school teacher at a local public school and she said that they don't much besides reading and writing. She has considered moving her son to my children's school but she said he doesn't know any different and he's happy. But she is disappointed they don't offer many other things besides band but that's not for kindy anyway.

I suggest you watch utopia. It's a real eye opener.

Here is an article that discusses the living conditions of aboriginal people in the Kimberley.

I sometimes think that Utopia is a biography of my life and the work I do.
My point was merely that all the communities I know of have water and electricity (I know this because I helped design a lot of it).
I know there are plenty of issues in the communities and I see it often. I too am passionate about these communities.
