Warnbro – WA 2021

ALP 23.7%

Incumbent MP
Paul Papalia, since 2008. Previously Member for Peel 2007-2008.

Southern fringe of Perth metropolitan region. Warnbro covers coastal suburbs at the southern end of Rockingham council area, including Singleton, Secret Harbour, Karnup, Warnbro and Port Kennedy.

No change.

Warnbro was newly created at the 2008 redistribution, but was a smaller version of the former seat of Peel. Peel was held by Labor continuously from its creation in 1989 until its abolition.

Norm Malborough had been first elected in Cockburn in 1986, and moved to Peel in 1989. He held the seat until his resignation under a cloud of scandal in 2006.

In early 2007, the by-election was won by Labor candidate Paul Papalia.

Papalia won the new seat of Warnbro in 2008, and was re-elected in 2013 and 2017.


  • Bob Velev (Waxit)
  • Liam Hall (One Nation)
  • Paul Papalia (Labor)
  • Mark Jones (Liberal)
  • Brandon Suchalla-Young (No Mandatory Vaccination)
  • Cameron McMaster (Liberal Democrats)
  • Robert Delves (Greens)

Warnbro is a very safe Labor seat.
