Division of Maranoa
Australian House of Representatives Division
|Area||729,897 km2 (281,814.8 sq mi)|
The Division of Maranoa is an Australian electoral division in Queensland. The division was proclaimed in 1900, and was one of the original 65 divisions to be contested at the first federal election. It is named after the Maranoa River, which runs through the division. Located in the mostly rural southwestern portion of the state, towns located in Maranoa include Charleville, Cunnamulla, Dalby, Roma, Kingaroy, Stanthorpe, Winton and Warwick.
Maranoa is a comfortably safe seat for The Nationals; it was the first Queensland seat won by that party. Originally a safe Labor seat, it has been in National hands for all but three years since the 1921 by-election, and without interruption since 1943. Maranoa was taken by the then-Country Party in 1943 despite a landslide Labor victory nationally—one of only seven seats won by the Country Party. At the 2016 federal election, One Nation overtook Labor for second place after preferences were distributed. In a traditional two-party matchup, Labor currently needs a 17-point swing to win it.
