Electoral district of Pine Rivers
Pine Rivers (2008—)
|Dates current||1972–1992; 2009–present|
|Area||411 km2 (158.7 sq mi)|
It was first created for the 1972 state election, based in the Shire of Pine Rivers in the northern outskirts of Brisbane. The final elected member, Margaret Woodgate, continued to represent the area as member for Kurwongbah following the 1992 state election.
Pine Rivers was reintroduced for the 2009 state election, essentially as Kurwongbah renamed. The name change from Kurwongbah was made necessary due to the redistribution excising the eponymous suburb from the district. Originally proposed to be called Samsonvale by the Electoral Commission of Queensland, the name Pine Rivers was adopted after further review.
