Electoral district of Dalrymple
|Party||Katter's Australian Party|
|Namesake||Dalrymple National Park|
|Area||105,337 km2 (40,670.8 sq mi)|
Based in inland northern Queensland, Dalrymple is a north–south elongated electorate, running from the Atherton Tableland west of Cairns at its northern end, down to areas west of Mackay at its southern end. Towns in the electorate include Charters Towers, Moranbah, Atherton and Herberton.
Dalrymple was first created for the 2009 election from parts of the abolished electorates of Charters Towers and Tablelands. Originally proposed by the Electoral Commission of Queensland to be named Macrossan, the name Dalrymple was adopted after further review. The district's first contest pitted two incumbent MPs against each other with sitting Charters Towers MP Shane Knuth of the Liberal National Party defeating sitting Tablelands MP Rosa Lee Long of One Nation.
