Australian House of Representatives Division
Division of Mitchell (green) in New South Wales
|Namesake:||Sir Thomas Mitchell|
|Area:||101 km² (39 sq mi)|
The Division of Mitchell is an Australian Electoral Division in the state of New South Wales. It is located in the north-west suburbs of Sydney, and includes the entire suburbs of Baulkham Hills, Beaumont Hills, Bella Vista, Box Hill, Kellyville, Nelson and Winston Hills. The division also includes parts of Castle Hill, North Rocks, Northmead, Maraylya, Rouse Hill and West Pennant Hills.
The Division is named after Major Thomas Mitchell, surveyor and explorer who was the first European to explore large areas of New South Wales and Victoria. The Division was proclaimed at the redistribution of May 11, 1949, and was first contested at the 1949 Federal election. The majority of the electorate is fairly conservative, and it has been a safe seat for the Liberals for most of its existence. However the most southern suburbs of Winston Hills and Northmead located in the Parramatta LGA possess bellwether tendencies and have been won by Labor at high-tide elections such as at the 2007 federal election.
The current member is Alex Hawke, the deputy chair of the Joint Select Committee on Cyber-Safety.
The seat will be contested at the 2013 election by the sitting member Alex Hawke for the Liberal Party of Australia. The Australian Labor Party candidate has yet to be named.
