Namesake Kurwongbah

Kurwongbah was an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of Queensland from 1992 to 2009.

The district was based in the outer northern suburbs of Brisbane. Prior to its abolition, it included the suburbs of Kurwongbah, Bray Park, Eatons Hill, Samsonvale and Strathpine. The seat was first contested at the 1992 state election, essentially as a reconfigured version of Pine Rivers.

In 2008, Kurwongbah was abolished—with effect at the 2009 state election—as a result of the redistribution undertaken by the Electoral Commission of Queensland. It was replaced by a recreated Pine Rivers, which is very similar in form to the old Kurwongbah.
