Wellington Province (Victoria)
Wellington Province was created in the redistribution of provinces in 1882, under which the Central and Eastern Provinces were abolished and the Wellington, North Central, South Yarra, North Yarra, South Eastern and Melbourne Provinces were formed.
Wellington Province was defined by the Legislative Council Act 1881 (which took effect from the 1882 elections) as consisting of the following divisions: Talbot Shire, Talbot Borough, Clunes, Tullaroop, Carisbrook, Maryborough, Creswick Shire, Creswick Borough, Bungaree, Ballaarat City, Ballaarat East and Sebastopol.
Members for Wellington ProvinceEdit
Three members were elected to the province initially; four from the expansion of the Council in 1889; two from the redistribution of 1904 when several new provinces including Bendigo, Melbourne West and Melbourne North were created.
