North-western Victoria. Mallee covers a large area in the corner of Victoria, bordering New South Wales and South Australia. Mallee covers Central Goldfields, Gannawarra, Buloke, Hindmarsh, Horsham, Loddon, Mildura, Northern Grampians, Swan Hill, West Wimmera and Yarriambiack council areas, and parts of the Pyrenees council area. Mallee includes the centres of Mildura, Ouyen, Swan Hill, St Arnaud, Warracknabeal and Horsham.
Mallee was created at the redistribution before the 1949 election as part of the expansion of the House of Representatives. It has always been held by the Country Party and its successor National Party.
The seat was won in 1949 by the Country Party’s Winton Turnbull. Turnbull had stood for office for the Country Party before the Second World War, but was captured in the fall of Singapore and was a prisoner of war for over three years. Turnbull won Wimmera in 1946, and moved to the new seat of Mallee in 1949.
Turnbull held Mallee for the next two decades, and retired at the 1972 election.
Mallee was won in 1972 by Peter Fisher, who held Mallee for another two decades, until he retired in 1993.
Mallee was won in 1993 by John Forrest, also of the National Party. Forrest held the seat for the next twenty years, retiring in 2013.
Nationals candidate Andrew Broad won Mallee in 2013, and was re-elected in 2016.
Broad retired in 2019, and Nationals candidate Anne Webster won the seat.
