The district was based in the area of southern suburbs of Brisbane previously named as the suburb of Sunnybank before Sunnybank was broken up into smaller suburbs. It was first created for the 1992 state election only to be abolished ahead of the 2001 state election, essentially replaced by the new district of Stretton.

Sunnybank was revived as an electorate for the 2009 state election to replace the abolished district of Mount Gravatt. It was abolished ahead of the 2017 election and replaced by the seat of Toohey.
