Division of Brisbane
Division of Brisbane (green) within Queensland
|Area||58 km2 (22.4 sq mi)|
The Division of Brisbane is an Australian Electoral Division in Queensland. The division was one of the original 75 divisions contested at the first federal election. It is named after the city of Brisbane.
For most of the time since the 1950s, it has been a marginal Labor seat. However, in 2010 Liberal National challenger Teresa Gambaro, previously the member for nearby Petrie, took the seat from longtime Labor incumbent Arch Bevis, marking the first time in over a century that Labor had been in government without holding Brisbane.
On its original boundaries, Brisbane included all of what is now the northern part of the City of Brisbane, but successive boundary changes cut it back to the inner suburban area.
It now extends from the city centre into the western suburbs, and includes the Brisbane CBD, Alderley, Ashgrove, Bowen Hills, Clayfield, Enoggera, Ferny Grove, Fortitude Valley, Gaythorne, Grange, Herston, Kelvin Grove, Keperra, Milton, Mitchelton, New Farm, Newmarket, Newstead, Red Hill, Spring Hill, Upper Kedron, Wilston, Windsor, parts of Bardon, Everton Park, Paddington and Stafford.
