Labor's Craig Wallace has held the seat since 2004. In the 2006 election Thuringowa went against the statewide trend of a slight swing against Labor, Mr. Wallace achieved a swing towards Labor of 16.2% primary vote and 9.5% two party preferred. Immediately after the election he was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for North Queensland, and two months later was promoted to Cabinet as the new Minister for Natural Resources and Water and Minister Assisting the Premier in North Queensland when a Cabinet vacancy was created by the resignation of then Attorney-General Linda Lavarch in late October 2006.
