The Division of Pembroke*

Pembroke encompasses that part of the Clarence City municipal area lying west of the Meehan Range and includes Otago, Risdon Vale, Geilston Bay, Lindisfarne, Rose Bay, Rosny, Bellerive, Warrane, Mornington, Howrah and Tranmere. It does not include the area known as Howrah Gardens.

* To provide a period of transition to the new boundaries, Section 29 of the Legislative
Council Electoral Boundaries Act 1995 doesn’t allow new boundaries to be used
before 1 January 2018, therefore this by-election will use the previous boundary.
