Contents

Politically, the district is a marginal one.

Geography

Based in the eastern suburbs of Perth, the district has a north–south elongation covering three separate built up areas. In the north, the district takes in the suburbs of High Wycombe, Maida Vale and a small part of Gooseberry Hill; in the middle it covers most of Forrestfield, Wattle Grove and part of Kewdale; whilst to the south is the suburb of Kenwick plus part of Maddington.

History

Forrestfield was first contested at the 2008 state election. It was a new seat created as a result of the one vote one value reforms. A plurality of the new district's voters came from the district of Darling Range, which was radically redrawn. The northernmost part of the electorate was constructed from parts of Belmont and Midland, whilst the voters in the southern part of the district were drawn in from Kenwick.
