I am privileged and proud to represent the people of Denison, which is a dynamic electorate with outstanding natural, cultural, social and economic qualities.
 
Denison is named after Sir William Denison who was Lieutenant Governor of Van Diemen’s Land (as Tasmania was then known) from 1847 until 1855.
 
The 289 square kilometre electorate is located in southern Tasmania and has a diverse mix of metropolitan and rural areas - nestled between picturesque Mount Wellington and the western shore of the River Derwent.
 
Denison includes the Local Government areas of the City of Hobart, the City of Glenorchy and part of the Municipality of Kingborough.
 
Stretching from Austins Ferry down to Bonnet Hill and Longley in the south, Denison extends west out to Collinsvale.
 
Suburbs include Claremont, Chigwell, Collinsvale, Berriedale, Rosetta, Montrose, Goodwood, Moonah, Derwent Park, Lutana, New Town, Lenah Valley, Mount Stuart, North Hobart, West Hobart, Battery Point, Dynnyrne, Mount Nelson, Sandy Bay, Taroona, Tolmans Hill, Ridgeway, South Hobart, Fern Tree and Neika.
 
Denison’s major employment sectors include government and public administration, health care, construction and trades, manufacturing and retail, as well as tourism and hospitality, with the MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) at Berriedale, the Cadbury chocolate factory at Claremont and Salamanca Market in Salamanca Place near Hobart’s waterfront.
 
Education, training and science are also vital sectors for Denison, with the University of Tasmania’s main campus at Sandy Bay, the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) on Hobart’s waterfront, and the Medical Precinct and Menzies Institute for Medical Research in the city’s CBD.
 
The electorate boasts all the benefits of living in a city, is easily accessible, offers an idyllic lifestyle and has a strong sense of community. Denison’s people are its best quality.
