New South Wales—Legislative Assembly
Location within Sydney
|State||New South Wales|
|Area||32.09 km2 (12.4 sq mi)|

Seven Hills was established for the first time in 1981 but it was abolished in 1991. It was recreated from 2015 as a result of the 2013 redistribution. It is named after and including the Sydney suburb of Seven Hills.
The second incarnation of Seven Hills largely consisted of areas from the abolished seat of Toongabbie, which had historically been a Labor stronghold before Labor's near-meltdown in west Sydney saw the Labor margin reduced from a comfortably safe 14.5 percent to an extremely marginal 0.3 percent. The transfer of traditionally pro-Labor voting areas to Blacktown and Prospect, and the addition of equally pro-Liberal areas from Baulkham Hills significantly altered the political composition of the electorate, giving the Liberals a notional margin of 8.8 percent–on the stronger side of fairly safe. The sitting member for Toongabbie was former Labor Premier Nathan Rees, who retired at the 2015 election.
