Warren-Blackwood covers a large expanse of south-western Western Australia, stretching from Margaret River to Denmark.Warren-Blackwood covers the Nannup, Bridgetown-Greenbushes, Boyup Brook, Manjimup, Plantagenet and Denmark council areas along with the southern half of the Augusta-Margaret River council area and part of the Donnybrook-Balingup council area..
Warren-Blackwood expanded to take in Balingup and Mullalyup from Collie-Preston. This reduced the Nationals margin from 13.4% to 12.9%.
The current seat of Warren-Blackwood was effectively created in 2008 following the passage of one-vote-one-value laws that reduced the number of electorates in regional Western Australia. In 2008, the Liberal-held seat of Warren-Blackwood and the Nationals-held seat of Stirling were merged as Blackwood-Stirling, which was renamed to Warren-Blackwood in 2013.
The original Warren-Blackwood was first created as the seat of Warren in 1950. The seat was held by a succession of Labor MPs from 1950 until 1989, when it was won by Liberal candidate Paul Omodei.
Omodei held his seat throughout the 1990s, serving as a minister in the Court government. The seat was renamed Warren-Blackwood in 1996.
Omodei became deputy leader of the Liberal Party following the 2005 election, and then became leader in 2006. He only lasted as leader until 2007, stepping down without facing an election. When Warren-Blackwood was merged with a neighbouring Nationals-held seat, Omodei planned to move to a winnable seat representing the South West in the upper house, but he was demoted to the unwinnable fourth position, which led to him resigning from the Liberal Party in 2008.
The seat of Stirling was held by the Country Party and National Party for its entire history, since its creation in 1950. The fifth MP to win the seat was Terry Redman, who was elected in 2005 for the Nationals.
Redman shifted to the new seat of Blackwood-Stirling in 2008, and joined the ministry of the new government. In 2013, he was re-elected in the renamed seat of Warren-Blackwood. Redman was elected leader of the Nationals at the end of 2013, and stepped down from the leadership in August 2016. Redman was re-elected in Warren-Blackwood in 2017.
