Beaudesert encompasses rural and semi-urban regions located to the south of the Brisbane metropolitan area. Major communities located within this electoral include Beaudesert, Boonah, Aratula, Jimboomba, Tamborine, Canungra, and Rathdowney.
The seat was created at the 1991 redistribution largely from the territory of the abolished seat of Fassifern. It has been a safe seat for the National Party, and its successor the Liberal National Party, since its creation, although former member Aidan McLindon left the LNP in 2010 to form The Queensland Party. He subsequently joined and became state leader of Katter's Australian Party in 2011, but lost his seat in 2012.
