Australian House of Representatives Division
|Area||5,586 km2 (2,156.8 sq mi)|
The Division of Groom is an Australian Electoral Division in Queensland. The division was created in 1984 as essentially a reconfigured version of the old Division of Darling Downs. It is named in honour of Sir Littleton Groom, who represented Darling Downs with only one short break from 1901 to 1936 and served as Speaker of the Australian House of Representatives.
The seat has never elected a Labor member in either of its incarnations. While Toowoomba itself (particularly, the northern suburbs) occasionally votes for Labor, it is nowhere near enough to overcome the conservative bent of the rural areas.
