Michael Hart, since 2012.
Judy Gamin won the seat for the National Party in 1992. She had first been elected to the seat of South Coast at a 1988 by-election following the retirement of former National Party minister Russ Hinze.
South Coast was abolished in 1992 and replaced by Burleigh, and Gamin won the new seat. She was re-elected in 1995 and 1998 before losing to the ALP’s Christine Smith at the landslide 2001 election.
Christine Smith was re-elected in 2004, 2006 and 2009.
Smith was defeated by LNP candidate Michael Hart in 2012. Hart has been re-elected three times.
