South-East Queensland. Bundamba covers the eastern Ipswich suburbs of Goodna, Redbank, Blackstone, Ebbw Vale, Riverview, Collingwood Park, Bellbird Park, Redbank Plains, Brookwater, Springfield Lakes and parts of Bundamba and Springfield. The seat covers the eastern parts of Ipswich local government area.
The seat of Bundamba existed from 1873 to 1912. The current seat was created in 1992, and has been held by the ALP for the last twenty years.
Bob Gibbs won the seat for the ALP in 1992. Gibbs had served as member for Wolston since 1977, and moved to Bundamba when his former seat was abolished.
Gibbs served as a minister in the Goss government from 1989 to 1996. He again served as a minister in the Beattie government from 1998 until his resignation from Parliament in 1999.
The seat was won by the ALP’s Jo-Ann Miller at a 2000 by-election. She has held the seat ever since, and served as a parliamentary secretary from 2001 to 2006.
Sitting Labor MP Jo-Ann Miller is running for re-election. The LNP is running Michael Kitzelmann. Also running is independent Angela Watson, who is running alongside controversial independent candidate Patricia Petersen, who is running in the neighbouring seat of Ipswich.
