Ballarat Seats:

Wendouree Buninyong


Seat of Wendouree

(Ballarat)
Marginal. Labor 5.8%

Profile:

Largely replacing the abolished electorate of Ballarat West, Wendouree covers Ballarat's northern, south western and western suburbs. It includes the suburbs Wendouree, Alfredton, Delacombe, Redan, Ballarat North, Invermay, Black Hill and Brown Hill, as well as much of the Ballarat CBD.

Wendouree as well as its predecessor, while marginal, has usually been the more Labor oriented of the two Ballarat based seats; though the Liberals have occasionally been able to gain it. The seat includes a combination of upmarket blue ribbon suburbs as well as staunchly working class suburban areas.

Incumbent MP:

Sharon Knight (Labor) - since 2014. Pictured right. She is not standing for reelection in 2018.

Electorate Boundaries and 2014 Polling Places:

Candidates:

  • Juliana Addison (Labor)

Assessment:

Wendouree is the type of Labor seat that would likely only fall to the Liberal Party if they were going on to win government in a landslide.
