- Held by: Colin Brooks Australian Labor Party, Member since 2006
- Since: ALP since 1976
- Swing at 2010 election: 7.6% to Liberal
- Redistribution details: Boundaries have moved north, losing most of Macleod and Yallambie to Ivanhoe in the south, while gaining more of Bundoora and Mill Park on the northern side of the Metropolitan Ring Road.
- Size of electorate: 28 sq km
KEY COMMENTS: Held by former Premier John Cain from its inception in 1976 to his retirement in 1992, and then by Sherryl Garbutt until 2006, Bundoora is a safe Labor seat that now has an estimated margin of 10.9%.
Based in Melbourne’s north-east suburbs 16 kilometres from the city, the electorate of Bundoora includes the suburbs of Kingsbury, Watsonia, Bundoora and parts of Macleod, Yallambie, Greensborough, Macleod and Mill Park. The electorate includes Bundoora Park, the main campus of La Trobe University, RMIT University’s Bundoora campus and until the recent redistribution also included the Simpson Army Barracks.
Education and defence jobs are two perennial issues for voters, but more broadly the district is directly impacted by transport infrastructure being split by the northern ring road and also in need of more public transport services for CBD access.
