Thompson (LNP/Liberal) since 2019.

Herbert
covers most of the urban area of Townsville. The City of Townsville local
government area is too large to be contained in one Federal electorate, so
some of the city’s outer suburbs are included in the neighbouring electorates
of Dawson and Kennedy. Covers 941 square kilometres.
