The Mirani electorate stretches south along to the Bruce Highway, from Mackay and then passes around the edge of Rockhampton to also include Mount Morgan. It covers much of the Queensland coast between the cities of Rockhampton and Mackay, as well as the hinterland west of Mackay. Mirani itself is a rural town of just over 800 people, situated only 30 kilometres from Mackay. Industry is an important facet of the electorate, and it extends to the west to gather an array of sugar industry areas which lie both west and south of Mackay. The electorate is also home to a number of mining towns, which include, Dysart and Middlemount and Mount Morgan.
Suburbs: Mount Morgan, Dysart, Middlemount, St Lawrence, Carmila, Sarina, and Eungella
