Kim Richards, since 2017.
Redlands is contained fully in the Redland council area. The seat covers Sheldon, Victoria Point and Redland Bay, as well as a number of Moreton Bay Islands and part of Thornlands.
Redlands has existed since the 1972 election. The seat has alternated between the ALP and the National Party (later the LNP).
The seat was won in 1972 by the ALP’s Edgar Baldwin. He lost in 1974 to the Country Party’s John Goleby. He held the seat until 1985, when he was succeeded by the National Party’s Paul Clauson.
Clauson lost in 1989 to the ALP’s Darryl Briskey. Briskey moved to the seat of Cleveland in 1992, holding it until his retirement in 2006.
Briskey was succeeded by Labor candidate John Budd. He held the seat for one term, losing in 1995 to National candidate John Hegarty.
Hegarty held the seat for two terms, and in the 2001 landslide election lost to the ALP’s John English.
English held the seat until 2009, when he lost to Liberal National candidate Peter Dowling. Dowling was re-elected in 2012.
Dowling retired in 2015, and was succeeded by LNP candidate Matt McEachan. McEachan held the seat for one term, and lost in 2017 to Labor’s Kim Richards.
