Located in Melbourne’s outer south-east suburbs, the Narre Warren South community is one of Victoria’s fastest-growing and most diverse hubs.
The state electorate, established in 2002, covers Hampton Park and Narre Warren South, and includes parts of Lynbrook and Berwick too.
It’s a genuine honour to represent such a vibrant, multicultural community in Parliament and work together with locals to ensure that everyone has access to secure jobs, well-funded training and education, upgraded transport infrastructure, health and the vital sport and community clubs that make Narre Warren South a fantastic place to live.
Did you know? The name Narre Warren (previously spelt ‘Narree Worran’ ) is of Indigenous origin, and means ‘small hills’.
