Electoral division of Elsey

Elsey was an electoral division of the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly in Australia. One of the original divisions, it was first contested in 1974 and was abolished in 1987. It was named after Elsey National Park. It was largely replaced by the new and considerably smaller electorate of Katherine, as population growth in the town of Katherine had resulted in the removal of much of the rural area of the electorate in the 1986 electoral redistribution.[1]
