Liza Harvey, since 2008.
Northern Perth. Scarborough covers the suburbs of Scarborough, Doubleview, Innaloo, Trigg and parts of Gwelup and Karrinyup, near the coast in the inner north of Perth. The entire seat is contained in the City of Stirling.
Scarborough shifted north, losing the southern half of Doubleview and a small part of Scarborough to Churchlands, and gaining part of North Beach and the remainder of Gwelup from Carine. These changes increased the Liberal margin from 5.6% to 5.8%.
Scarborough was created in its current form at the 2008 election. A seat named Scarborough previously existed as a marginal seat from 1974 to 1996.
The previous seat was held by the Liberals from 1974 to 1983, then the ALP from 1983 to 1989, and again by the Liberal Party from 1989 to 1996.
The new seat was created with a notional Liberal margin of 2.6%. Liberal candidate Liza Harvey was elected with a 2.6% swing. Harvey was elevated to the ministry in 2012. She was re-elected in 2013, and became deputy premier in February 2016.
Harvey was re-elected in Scarborough in 2017, but her party was tipped out of office. She served as Liberal leader from June 2019 to November 2020.
