Electoral district of Camden

Camden is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of New South Wales. It is represented by Geoff Corrigan of the Australian Labor Party.

History

Camden was originally created in 1859, replacing part of West Camden and named after the town of Camden or Camden County, which includes Camden, the Southern Highlands and the Illawarra. It elected two members from 1859 to 1889 and three members from 1889 to 1894, when multi-member electorates were abolished. It was abolished in 1920, with the introduction of proportional representation and absorbed into Cumberland. It was recreated in 1981. [cite web
