The Murrumbidgee electorate is one of the five electorates for the unicameral 25-member Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly. It elected five members at the 2016 ACT election.


Murrumbidgee was created in 2016, when the five-electorate, 25-member Hare-Clark electoral system was first introduced for the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), replacing the previous three-electorate, 17-member system. The electorate is named after the Murrumbidgee River which flows through the electorate, with the word "Murrumbidgee" meaning "big water" in the Aboriginal Wiradjuri language.[1]


The Murrumbidgee electorate consists of the districts of Molonglo Valley, Weston Creek, Woden Valley, Coree, and Stromlo. It also contains part of the district of Tuggeranong, including the suburb of Kambah and the area west of Athllon Drive.
