The Division of Fadden is an Australian Electoral Division in Queensland. The division was created in 1977 and is named after Sir Arthur Fadden, Prime Minister of Australia in 1941. When it was created it included a large area south of Brisbane, but today it is located in the northern Gold Coast area, including Coomera, Labrador, Ormeau, Pimpama and Runaway Bay. As its boundaries have changed Fadden has become an increasingly safe seat for the Liberal Party.
