Ray Williams, since 2015. Previously member for Hawkesbury 2007-2015.
Northwestern Sydney. Castle Hill covers parts of the Hills Shire, including the suburbs of Castle Hill, Beaumount Hills, Kellyville, Glenhaven and Rouse Hill.
Castle Hill was created in 2007, replacing the former seat of The Hills. The Hills had existed since 1962, and had always been held by Liberal MPs.
The Hills was first won in 1962 by Max Ruddock, a former president of Hornsby Shire. He served as a minister in the Coalition state government from 1975 to 1976. Shortly after the government lost power in 1976, Ruddock announced his retirement, and died six days later. His son Phillip was elected to the House of Representatives in 1973 and still serves there today.
The 1976 by-election was won by Fred Caterson. He held the seat until he resigned from Parliament in 1990.
Another by-election in 1990 was won by former car dealer Tony Packard. He was re-elected in 1991, but resigned in 1993 after being convicted of installing listening devices illegally when he worked as a car dealer.
The 1993 by-election was won by Liberal candidate Michael Richardson. He held The Hills until 2007, when he won election to the renamed seat of Castle Hill.
In 2011, Richardson lost preselection to Dominic Perrottet, who was elected.
Perrottet swapped seats in 2015 with Hawkesbury MP Ray Williams. Williams had represented Hawkesbury since 2007, and won Castle Hill in 2015.
Castle Hill is the safest Liberal seat in the state.
