Division of Barrier
The Division of Barrier was an Australian Electoral Division in New South Wales. The division was created in 1901 and abolished in 1922. It was named for the Barrier Range near the city of Broken Hill in western New South Wales. It covered Broken Hill and surrounding pastoral areas. It was a very safe seat for the Australian Labor Party, although both its members left the ALP at the end their terms: Josiah Thomas to join the Nationalists, and Michael Considine (a radical socialist) to sit as an independent.
- Hon Josiah Thomas (ALP, Nationalist) 1901-17
- Michael Considine (ALP, Independent Labor) 1917-22
