Electoral district of Swansea


Electoral district of Swansea

Swansea is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of New South Wales. It was represented by Milton Orkopoulos of the Australian Labor Party until his arrest in 2006 on allegations of child sex and drugs offences. It is now represented by Robert Coombs, also of the Australian Labor Party.

Swansea is 131 km north of Sydney hosting a population of around 175,510 in its 749 square Kilometers. Swansea contains the southern hemisphere's largest salt water lake, Lake Macquarie, formerly known as Reid's Mistake. The lake was bestowed this title after the namesake of Captain William Reid, who, in 1800, accidentally traveled into the lake thinking it was the Hunter River. Lake Macquarie was given its current name in 1826 after Governor Lachlan Macquarie. [cite web
