Electoral district of Nicklin
|Area||920 km2 (355.2 sq mi)|
Nicklin is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of Queensland. The electorate is centred in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, and stretches north to Black Mountain, south to Palmwoods and Montville, and west to Kenilworth, including Conondale National Park. It includes notable localities such as Nambour, Yandina, Cooroy, Bli Bli, Mapleton and Woombye.
The seat is currently held by independent Peter Wellington, who has done so since the 1998 election. His first vote in Parliament was to decide who would form government, the election having left the Labor Party one seat short of a majority. Wellington backed the formation of a minority Beattie Labor government.
