A new district created for the 2009 state election to accommodate the Gold Coast's urban growth, Coomera was in large part drawn from the eastern half of the district of Albert, which was significantly reduced in size. The southern end of Coomera also includes parts previously belonging to the districts of Broadwater and Gaven. Its inaugural member is Michael Crandon of the Liberal National Party.
