Division of Burke (1969-2004)
The Division of Burke was an Australian Electoral Division in Victoria. The division was created in 1969 and abolished in 2004. It was named for Robert Burke, leader of the first expedition to cross Australia from south to north. It was located in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne, including Broadmeadows and Thomastown, but later extended into rural areas including Bacchus Marsh , Gisborne and Sunbury. It was generally a safe seat for the Australian Labor Party. The last member for Burke, Brendan O'Connor, was elected for the new seat of Gorton in 2004.
