yuroke map detailedThe state electorate of Yuroke covers the suburbs of Craigieburn, Greenvale, Attwood, Mickleham, Kalkallo, Oaklands Junction, Yuroke, and parts of Westmeadows, Somerton, and Roxburgh Park.

Yuroke was established as a state electorate in the 2001 review of electoral boundaries ahead of the 2002 election. Liz Beattie was the first member for Yuroke from 2002 until her retirement in 2014.

The Yuroke electorate is notable for its high proportions of young people, families, cultural diversity, and as an area where many families buy their first home. Over 43,000 electors currently reside in Yuroke – a number that is expected to grow significantly over the next decade.

All of the suburbs in Yuroke are in the local government area (LGA) of Hume City Council, with suburbs in both the Aitken and Meadow Valley Wards.

Federally, the area is served by Rob Mitchell as the Member for McEwen (Somerton, Mickleham, Yuroke, Oaklands Junction, Kalkallo, and Craigieburn north of Craigieburn Road) and Maria Vamvakinou as the Member for Calwell (Westmeadows, Attwood, Greenvale, Roxburgh Park, and Craigieburn south of Craigieburn Road).
