The Electoral district of Warrandyte is an electoral district of the Victorian Legislative Assembly. It is an outer metropolitan electorate and contains Warrandyte, Warranwood as well as parts of Croydon and Ringwood.
Warrandyte was traditionally a marginal seat, having been held by the Liberal from the seats foundation at the 1976 election until they lost government at the 1982 election. It then was Labor held until the 1988 election, when Phil Honeywood became the only Liberal to take a seat off Labor.
Honeywood made the seat very secure for the Liberals, to the point that he comfortably held the seat at the 2002 election when over half of his Legislative Assembly colleagues lost their seats. He became Deputy Leader of the Opposition before retiring at the 2006 election. Fellow Liberal Ryan Smith easily retained the seat.
