Key Comments

Macquarie covers 4374 square kilometres, including the Blue Mountains, and tends to be a marginal electorate. Tourism, mixed farming, small manufacturing and higher education are key industries in the region, which also encompasses the Richmond RAAF base. Flight paths for the planned Badgerys Creek Airport are a key local issue.
