Seat of Evelyn

(Outer Eastern Melbourne)
Fairly Safe. Liberal 9.6%

Profile:

Evelyn is an electorate located in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne. It suburbs and towns of Coldstream, Gruyere, Lilydale, and Wonga Park. It has shrunk over the years as the eastern suburbs of Melbourne have continued to grow.

The district has generally been safe for the Liberal Party, though Labor do manage to gain the seat when they win across the state in a landslide. Labor first gained the seat in 1952 and held it until 1958; they gained it again in 1982 and held it until 1985 and gained it in 2002 and held it until 2006. In terms of demographics, the seat fits a rural skilled working class profile with most people employed in trades.

Incumbent MP:

Christine Fyffe (Liberal) - since 2006. Pictured right. She is not standing for reelection in 2018.
