- Electoral district of Gosnells
The district is based in the south-eastern suburbs of Perth. It includes almost all of the suburb of Gosnells, large parts of the suburbs of Huntingdale and Thornlie and a small part of the suburb of Martin.
Politically, Gosnells appears to be a safe Labor seat. Based on the results of the 2005 state election, the district was created with a Labor Party majority of 61.5% to 38.5% versus the Liberal Party.cite web | url=http://www.abc.net.au/elections/wa/2009/redistribution.htm | title=2007 Western Australia Redistribution | publisher=ABC | author=
Gosnells was first created for the 1977 state election and abolished ahead of the 1989 state election. It was largely replaced by the district of Thornlie, which sitting Gosnells MP Yvonne Henderson contested and won. Gosnells was held at all times by the Labor Party.
A new seat named Gosnells was created for the 2008 state election when the number of metropolitan seats was increased in accordance with the new
one vote one valuelegislation. The new district was drawn from large parts of the electorates of Kenwick, which was abolished, and Southern River as well as a small part of Armadale.
