About Whitsunday

Whitsunday was created in the 1949 redistribution. It extends north of Mackay to Bowen and includes Eimeo, Proserpine and Cannonvale Beach. Hamilton and Hayman Islands are also included in the seat.

Seat Background

Whitsunday was held by the National (Country) Party from 1950 to 1989 when it fell to the ALP, In 1998 One Nation's Harry Black won the seat. He quit One Nation in 1999 and contested the 2001 election for the City Country Alliance. That election saw Labor's Jan Jarratt win from the National Party by a margin of 9.6 percent. She increased this to 14.8 percent in the subsequent election.
