Higgins is often caricatured as the haunt of "doctors’ wives" (although the feminisation of the medical profession probably means there are more doctors’ husbands in the electorate).

But it's much more diverse than most realise, ranging from the youthful and funky streets of Prahran and South Yarra (where the Greens won several booths), to the traditional Labor suburb of Carnegie (where we also won a booth), and across the swathes of comfortable affluence in the middle and north of the electorate (where the Greens vote was lower but that saw some of the biggest swings away from the Liberals).
