Frances Bedford, since 1997.
North-eastern Adelaide. Most of Florey lies in the Tea Tree Gully local government area, as well as small parts in Port Adelaide Enfield and Salisbury. Florey covers the suburbs of Modbury and Modbury Heights, and parts of Gilles Plains, Hope Valley, Modbury North, Para Hills, Para Vista, Valley View and Wynn Vale.
Florey has existed since 1970, and has been held by the ALP at all but one election.
Charles Wells held the seat for the Labor Party from 1970 to 1979, followed by Harold O’Neill from 1979 to 1982.
Bob Gregory won the seat in 1982, and held the seat until his loss in 1993.
The Liberal Party’s Sam Bass won the seat in a shock result in 1993. He held the seat for one term, and in 1997 lost to Frances Bedford.
Bedford has retained the seat at the 2002, 2006 and 2010 seats.
Florey is a very marginal Labor seat and will be a Liberal target.
