Geography

Moore is a coastal district, covering an expanse of rural territory to the north of Perth and surrounding but not including the regional city of Geraldton. The district includes the towns of Kalbarri, Northampton, Nabawa, Mullewa, Dongara, Irwin, Mingenew, Morawa, Three Springs, Perenjori, Carnamah, Eneabba, Leeman, Coorow, Jurien Bay, Cervantes, Badgingarra, Dandaragan, Moora, Dalwallinu, Lancelin, Ledge Point, Guilderton, Gingin, Bindoon, Calingiri and Toodyay.

History

Electoral reform ahead of the 2008 state election necessitated an increase in the enrolment of non-metropolitan districts. This meant that the district of Greenough was abolished, with Moore taking in most of its former territory and voters. This pitted the National member for Greenough, Grant Woodhams, against the Liberal member for Moore, Gary Snook, with Woodhams emerging the victor.

Moore's most famous member was Henry Lefroy, Premier of Western Australia from 1917 to 1919.
