Wagin was first created for the 1911 state election. Until 1947, its member was Sydney Stubbs who represented several different conservative parties over that time. Stubbs was succeeded by Crawford Nalder, who would later become Country Party leader. Wagin was abolished ahead of the 1950 state election whence Nalder instead became the member for Katanning.
Wagin was recreated at the 1989 state election. The first member of the recreated seat was National MP Bob Wiese, formerly the member for Narrogin; the district that Wagin largely replaced. Wiese was succeeded by current member and National MP Terry Waldron at the 2001 state election.
