Electoral district of Ocean Reef
Western Australia—Legislative Assembly
|Area||22 km2 (8.5 sq mi)|
Ocean Reef was created at the 2007 redistribution out of most of the Mindarie electorate and parts of Joondalup and Hillarys. Its creation reflected both the growth of the City of Wanneroo region which now required three full electorates (Wanneroo, Mindarie and Girrawheen), and the increase in the number of metropolitan seats in accordance with the new one vote one value legislation.
Ocean Reef was a notional Labor seat upon its creation, but was one of a number of marginal seats that fell to the Liberal Party of Australia at the 2008 election. Liberal candidate Albert Jacob won it on a swing of six percent. He picked up a massive 16-point swing in 2013 amid the Liberals' landslide re-election victory. Ocean Reef was abolished in a 2015 redistribution, with effect from the 2017 state election. Its territory was distributed between Burns Beach (a new seat) and Joondalup.
In the redistribution of 2011, the suburb of Mindarie was moved from the district of Mindarie into the district of Ocean Reef, effective at the 2013 election. The district of Mindarie was renamed Butler as a result.
