Named after Boyle Travers Finniss, a surveyor of Matthew Flinders and the first Premier of South Australia, the district was created at the 1991 redistribution of boundaries and first contested and represented in 1993. The electorate of Finniss stretches from Waitpinga in the west to Lake Alexandrina in the east, covering approximately 1395 square kilometers in area and is home to over 26,000 enrolled voters today.

Situated on the Fleurieu Peninsula, the region is home to a diverse population of primary industries, tourism, professional services and is a major contributor to the state and country’s wine industry. The landscape includes national parks, valleys, pristine beaches, and ports. Icons such as the Granite island Causeway, Steam Ranger Heritage Railway, The Mill at Middleton, The Heysen Trail, Victorian era architecture and many more serve as a reminder of the rich history the area has had in revolutionising the industries around the state.
