Wanneroo is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of Western Australia.

Contents

The district is located in the northern suburbs of Perth.

Wanneroo is a marginal seat; it has been held by the government of the day on every occasion since its creation in 1989.

Geography

Wanneroo is based in the outer northern suburbs of Perth. It includes the suburbs of Ashby, Banksia Grove, Carramar, Gnangara, Hocking, Jandabup, Madeley, Mariginiup, Pearsall, Sinagra, Tapping, Wangara and Wanneroo.

History

Wanneroo was first created for the 1989 state election. It replaced the abolished seat of Joondalup, and was won by Labor MP Jackie Watkins, then the member for Joondalup. Watkins lost the seat one term later when Labor lost government at the 1993 state election. The seat remained in Liberal Party hands for two terms until the party lost government at the 2001 state election. This pattern asserted itself again at the 2008 state election when Labor's two term hold on the seat ended with the defeat of the Labor government.

It is named for the South West coal mining town of Collie. While historically a very safe seat for the Labor Party, redistributions in 1988 and 2007 due to increases in the quota for country seats which had historically been malapportioned resulted in the seat incorporating surrounding rural shires which were hostile to Labor and thereby becoming more marginal.
