The Division of Moore is an Australian electoral division in the state of Western Australia. It was set up in 1949 and named after George Fletcher Moore, the first Advocate-General of Western Australia.[1]

The division was at first a rural area north and east of Perth, the state capital, along the Indian Ocean coast. It is now an urban area and includes the suburbs of Clarkson, Duncraig, Hillarys, Heathridge, Mullaloo, Ocean Reef and Padbury.[1]
