About Noosa

Noosa, created in 1991, is located on the Sunshine Coast. It extends from Coolum in the south through Eumundi, Noosa and Tewantin to Kin Kin.

Seat Background

Noosa was held by the Liberal Party from 1992 until an 11.1 percent swing saw the seat fall to Labor in 2001. Labor's Cate Molloy holds the seat by a precarious margin of 400 votes.

Commentary and Analysis

The Liberal candidate, Glen Elmes, a local radio station manager, will be keen to regain Noosa in 2004. A failure to do so will be a significant blow to the party's efforts to re-establish itself. Molloy has built up a high local profile but will need every ounce of this to avert defeat. Beattie's campaign announcement of a prohibition on land clearing was made in Noosa in an effort to boost his and Molloy's green credentials. However, despite this, the Greens have declined to direct preferences to Labor leaving the decision to individual voters.
