Division of Lilley
Australian House of Representatives Division
|Namesake||Sir Charles Lilley|
|Area||144 km2 (55.6 sq mi)|
The Division of Lilley includes sparsely populated areas of Brisbane Airport, tidal wetlands around Boondall and industrial areas around Pinkenba.
It was held by the Liberal Party and its antecedents for all but four terms from 1913 to 1980. However, since 1980, it has tended to be a marginal Labor seat. It is currently represented by former Treasurer and former Deputy Leader of the Labor Party and Deputy Prime Minister, Wayne Swan. Besides Swan, its most notable member has been George Mackay, who served as Speaker of the Australian House of Representatives during the first term of the Lyons Government, and Kevin Cairns, a minister in the McMahon government.
Lilley stretches from Nundah in the south to the bayside suburbs of Sandgate and Brighton in the north, and as far west as Everton Park.
Lilley currently covers the north-eastern part of the City of Brisbane local government area, and includes Banyo, Boondall, Brighton, Chermside, Deagon, Geebung, Kedron, Northgate, Nudgee, Nundah, Pinkenba, Sandgate, Shorncliffe, Taigum, Virginia, Wavell Heights, Zillmere, and Aspley.
