Named after Peter Lalor, leader of the Eureka Stockade rebellion in 1854, the electorate of Lalor is a growing and changing region.
As the home of the Woiwurung and Wathaurung people, it is a place that encompasses both old and new.
Little River and Werribee were established by early settlers as stop over points, while newer areas of Truganina and Tarneit are rapidly expanding.
Industry in Lalor is a mix of manufacturing and production, market gardening and farming, as well as tourism and services.
“Lalor is also home to the Werribee Open Range Zoo, Werribee Park Mansion, the National Equestrian Centre and the Werribee Campus of Victoria University.
The main suburbs include part of Altona Meadows and Truganina and all of Hoppers Crossing, Laverton, Laverton North, Little River, Point Cook, Seabrook, Tarneit, Werribee, Werribee South, Williams Landing and Wyndham Vale. Rural areas of Eynesbury (part), Mount Cottrell (part), Quandong, Mambourin and Cocoroc are also included.
