Enjoying this series of quizzes - not that I'm very good at it but learning things along the way.

Thanks! You can always try some of the current divisions too (e.g Cowper, New England and Richmond in the conservative northern parts of NSW existed in 1901 and still exist today). Ballarat has a different spelling nowadays (in 1901 it was spelt Ballaarat, which is the Aboriginal spelling), but I've made it so both Ballarat and Ballaarat are both correct answers.
