2 Outdoor Recreation Party MLC Malcolm Jones resigned on 23 September 2003, pre-empting an expulsion motion as a result of criminal charges he was facing for misusing his parliamentary entitlements. Dr Jon Jenkins was appointed to the resulting casual vacancy on 29 October.

4 Christian Democratic Party MLC Fred Nile resigned on 30 August 2004 to contest a seat in the Australian Senate at the 2004 federal election. The party initially nominated Ross Clifford as his replacement, but later decided to renominate Nile to his own vacancy on 21 October after he failed in his Senate bid.
5 Labor MLC Michael Egan resigned in January 2005. Greg Donnelly was appointed as his replacement on 23 February.
6 Labor MLC Carmel Tebbutt resigned on 26 August 2005 in order to contest a by-election in the Legislative Assembly seat of Marrickville. Penny Sharpe was appointed to the resulting casual vacancy on 30 September.
7 Shooters Party MLC John Tingle resigned on 2 May 2006 due to health issues. Robert Brown was appointed to the resulting casual vacancy on 3 May.
8 Peter Breen was elected on the ticket of the Reform the Legal System microparty, which subsequently morphed into the Human Rights Party. He defected to the Australian Labor Party on 6 May 2006, but was forced to resign from the party on 18 July after making controversial comments about a convicted murderer. Breen subsequently returned to the Human Rights Party.
9 Liberal MLC Patricia Forsythe resigned on 13 September 2006 after losing Liberal preselection to recontest her seat at the 2007 election. Matthew Mason-Cox, who had defeated her for preselection, was appointed to the casual vacancy on 28 September.
10 Outdoor Recreation Party MLC Dr Jon Jenkins resigned on 16 February 2007. The party did not nominate a replacement due to the close proximity of the 2007 state election.
