Australian House of Representatives Division
The Division of Watson was an Australian Electoral Division in the state of New South Wales. It was located in the inner southern suburbs of Sydney, and originally included the suburbs of Coogee, Kensington and Maroubra. By the time it was abolished in 1968, it covered the suburbs of Banksmeadow, Mascot and Redfern.
The Division was named after Hon Chris Watson, the first Labor Prime Minister of Australia. It replaced his old electorate the Division of South Sydney, and was proclaimed at the redistribution of 1 August 1934. It was abolished at the redistribution of 21 November 1968.
