Wagga Wagga is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of New South Wales. It is represented by Daryl Maguire of the Liberal Party of Australia.

Wagga Wagga is a regional electorate. It covers three local government areas: the City of Wagga Wagga, Lockhart Shire and Tumut Shire.[1]

History[edit]

Wagga Wagga was created in 1894. In 1920, Wagga Wagga, Albury and Corowa was absorbed into Murray and elected four members under proportional representation. At the end of proportional representation in 1927, Wagga Wagga was recreated, with Mr Matthew Kilpatrick, the Country party candidate, winning the October election. According to Daily Advertiser, the vote against a continuance of the Labor Government (led by Jack Lang) was very decisive.[2]
