History

Tamworth was created in 1880 and it elected two members between 1891 and 1894. In 1894, with the abolition of multi-member electorates, new electorates were established, such as Quirindi, Bingara and Uralla-Walcha, and Tamworth became a single-member electorate. Proportional representation was introduced in 1920 and Tamworth, along with Gwydir, was absorbed into Namoi. In 1927, single-member electorates were re-established, including Tamworth.
