The electoral district of Euroa is an electoral district of the Victorian Legislative Assembly in Australia. It was created in the redistribution of electoral boundaries in 2013. [1]

Contents

It was a new district created due to the abolition of the districts of Seymour, Rodney and Benalla, taking in the areas to the north of these districts toward Shepparton. It includes the towns of Benalla, Violet Town, Euroa, Seymour, Heathcote, Nagambie, Rushworth, and other towns in the Campaspe, Strathbogie, Benalla, and Mitchell local government areas. [2]

Euroa is estimated to be a safe Nationals seat with a margin of 13.6%. [3] Steph Ryan retained it for the Nationals, and actually picked up a small swing in her favour even as the Coalition lost government.
