About Gaven

Gaven, created at the 1999 redistribution, is a Gold Coast hinterland seat. It is bisected by the Pacific Highway and extends from Oxenford and Helensvale in the north to Nerang in the south.

Seat Background

Gaven was won for Labor by Robert Poole when he defeated the Nationals Bill Baumann who saw this seat as a better prospect than his old seat of Albert. Baumann suffered a 13.5 percent swing against him which propelled Poole into Parliament with a margin of 7.7 percent.

The by-election has been caused by the resignation of Poole for health and family reasons.
