|Area||147 km2 (56.8 sq mi)|
The Division of Lilley is an Australian Electoral Division in Queensland. The division was first proclaimed in 1913. The division is named after Sir Charles Lilley, a former Premier of Queensland and a former Chief Justice in the Supreme Court of Queensland.
The Division of Lilley includes sparsely populated areas of Brisbane Airport, tidal wetlands around Boondall and industrial areas around Pinkenba.
Lilley stretches from the upper-class riverside suburbs of Ascot, Hamilton and Clayfield in the south to the bayside suburbs of Sandgate and Brighton in the north, and as far west as Chermside and Kedron.
Lilley currently covers the north-eastern part of the City of Brisbane local government area, and includes Ascot, Banyo, Boondall, Brighton, Chermside, Deagon, Geebung, Gordon Park, Hamilton, Hendra, Kedron, Northgate, Nudgee, Nundah, Pinkenba, Sandgate, Shorncliffe, Taigum, Virginia, Wavell Heights, Wooloowin, and Zillmere, and parts of Albion, Aspley, and Lutwyche.
The Division of Lilley tends to be a Labor marginal seat, and is currently represented by former Treasurer and former Deputy Leader of the Australian Labor Party and Deputy Prime Minister, Wayne Swan.
