About Gympie

The electorate of Gympie is centred on this southern Queensland town and extends from Tin Can Bay in the north and south to Cooroy.

Seat Background

A former National Party stronghold, Gympie returned Len Stephan from 1979 until his retirement in 2001. Stephan beat off a sustained One Nation challenge in 1998 with the help of Labor preferences to win by 700 votes. In 2001 One Nation candidate, Elisa Roberts, was successful, defeating Labor, National and City Country Alliance opponents. In April 2002 Roberts quit One Nation and contested the 2004 election as an independent. She will not be recontesting this election.
