     Home | Australian Electorate | Division of Bonner

The Division of Bonner is an Australian Electoral Division in Queensland. The division was created in 2004 and is named after Neville Bonner, the first Aborigine to serve in the Australian Parliament. Bonner served in the federal Senate as a Queensland Liberal Senator. Apart from Bonner there are only three other divisions which bear the names of Aboriginal people, Bennelong in New South Wales, Blair in Queensland and Lingiari in the Northern Territory.

The Division of Bonner is located in the eastern suburbs of Brisbane, including the suburbs of Chandler, Carindale, Manly, Mount Gravatt, Wishart and Wynnum. The seat had a notional Labor majority when it was created, but was won by the Liberal Party in 2004 by a slight margin. Kerry Rea regained the seat for Labor in 2007. Then Ross Vasta re-took the seat for Liberals in the 2010 elections.
