Electoral district of Nanango
|Area||13,885 km2 (5,361.0 sq mi)|
It has existed twice. It was first created in 1912, and was replaced by Barambah in 1950. It was recreated in 2001, as a replacement for Barambah.
Nanango was the original seat of Sir Joh-Bjelke Petersen (from 1947 to 1950).
The seat has never been won by the Australian Labor Party in either of its incarnations; indeed, counting its history as Barambah (which covered essentially the same area), it has been in the hands of a conservative party or a conservative independent for over a century.
