Electoral district of Shellharbour
Shellharbour is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of New South Wales. The seat was created at the 2004 redistribution of electoral districts and takes in the majority of voters from the abolished Illawarra, as well as territory that previously belonged to Wollongong and Kiama. It was contested for the first time in the 2007 general election, and won by Lylea McMahon of the Australian Labor Party. It is now represented by Anna Watson who won Labor preselection after McMahon decided not to contest the election.
It encompasses part of the City of Shellharbour (east of the South Coast line, as far south as Flinders including Shellharbour, Warilla, Barrack Heights, Barrack Point, Oak Flats, Mount Warrigal and Blackbutt) and the southwestern edge of the City of Wollongong (including Dapto, Kanahooka, Koonawarra, Horsley, Penrose and Yallah).
