North of Western Australia. Durack covers a majority of Western Australia’s landmass, stretching from the northern Wheatbelt outside of Perth, covering the coast all the way to the Northern Territory border. Major towns include Geraldton, Broome and Port Hedland.
Durack expanded closer to Perth, taking in the rural hinterland parts of the seat of Pearce, including the Gingin, Chittering, Toodyay, Northam and York council areas, along with part of the Swan council area. Durack also lost fifteen council areas in the northern wheatbelt to O’Connor, including Merredin, as well as Wiluna Shire further north. This reduced the Liberal margin from 14.8% to 13.5%.
Kalgoorlie had previously swung between Labor and Liberal, and was held by the ALP’s Graeme Campbell from 1980.
Campbell was expelled from the ALP in 1995, and was re-elected in 1996.
Campbell lost to the Liberal Party’s Barry Haase in 1998.
Haase moved to Durack in 2010, and won a fifth term.
Haase retired in 2013, and was succeeded by Liberal candidate Melissa Price, who has been re-elected twice.
The Liberal Party is under no threat from Labor in Durack. At times in the past the Nationals have been close enough to the top two to pose a threat, but the Nationals vote was hit hard by One Nation in 2019, and was further impacted by the redistribution bringing the seat closer to Perth. It’s likely the seat will stay Liberal.
