Electoral district of Northam
Western Australia—Legislative Assembly
The district was based on the town of Northam lying to the east of Perth. It was one of the original 30 seats contested at the 1890 state election. The district was abolished at the 1974 state election. Its last member, Ken McIver of the Labor Party, went on to become the member for Avon.
Northam was represented by just five members over the course of its 84 year history. Remarkably, three of those members served as Premier of Western Australia: George Throssell (Premier 1901), James Mitchell (Premier 1919–1924 & 1930–1933) and Albert Hawke (Premier 1953–1959).
