The McMahon Electorate
The electorate of McMahon is a proud and diverse community, from the CBD of Fairfield to the farmlands of Horsley Park. It is home to a large multicultural community, including Assyrians, Chaldeans, Italians, Maltese and Vietnamese. I'm proud to represent people from so many different backgrounds and faiths in our Parliament.
McMahon also features the Prospect Reservoir, a water supply and storage reservoir which attracts up to half a million visitors annually.
The seat of McMahon is named after Sir William McMahon, the 20th Prime Minister of Australia. The seat was previously known as Prospect and was renamed during the 2009 Federal Redistribution.
