HOLT, Lindsay - GRN
Kawana, created in 1999 from the old seat of Mooloolah, is located on the Sunshine Coast. It covers the beach suburbs between Kawana and Point Cartwright and extends west of the Sunshine Motorway to include Buderim.
Despite having represented the Kawana area since 1992, Liberal member, Bruce Laming, suffered a 17.3 percent swing against him in 2001. This turned his seat from safe Liberal to marginal Labor. Incumbent Chris Cummins has a slight move against him at the last election making Kawana Labor's second most marginal on 1.5 percent.
