Central Queensland. Callide covers regional areas inland from the central Queensland coast. The seat covers Biloela, Moura, Monto, Eidsvold, Mundubbera, Gayndah, Theodore, Taroom, Chinchilla, Calliope and Wandoan.
Callide was created at the 1950 election, and apart from a short period in the 1980s has always been dominated by the Country/National/Liberal National parties.
Vincent Jones held the seat for the Country Party from 1950 to 1971.
At the 1972 election the seat was won by the Country Party’s Lindsay Hartwig. Hartwig won further terms in 1974, 1977 and 1980. In 1981 Hartwig was expelled from the National Country Party. He won re-election in 1983 as an independent and retired in 1986.
Di McCauley held Callide for the National Party from 1986 until 1998.
In 1998, McCauley was succeeded by Jeff Seeney.
Seeney won re-election in 2001, 2004 and 2006, and after the 2006 election became Leader of the National Party.
In 2008, Seeney was replaced by his predecessor Lawrence Springborg, who led the Nationals into a merger with the Liberal Party later that year.
Seeney won re-election as a Liberal National candidate in 2009, 2012 and 2015.
In March 2011, Campbell Newman replaced John-Paul Langbroek as leader of the LNP. As Newman did not hold a seat in the Parliament, Seeney was appointed as interim parliamentary leader.
Jeff Seeney served as deputy premier in the Newman government, and moved to the backbench after the 2015 election.
