Robbie Katter

Candidate for Mount Isa Electorate (QLD)

Robbie Katter is KAP’s State Leader, and is the current Member for Mount Isa. With the boundaries for many of Queensland’s electorates changing, Robbie is now standing for the seat of Traeger, which includes his home town of Mount Isa and Charters Towers, where he was born and raised.

 

Robbie has been an untiring voice for North Queensland since winning the seat of Mount Isa in 2012.

 

He and KAP’s Shane Knuth have achieved incredibly things for the North with their two votes in Parliament, including an ethanol mandate and changes to sugar marketing laws that have made a difference to thousands of sugar cane families.

 

Robbie has lived and worked in the North West since 2001 where he owned and operated a property valuation business in Mount Isa. He worked in this industry for 16 years after studying economics at university and a two-year stint working in the mines.

 

Robbie served on the Mount Isa City Council as councillor for four years before being elected State Member for Mount Isa.

 

A keen sports enthusiast, he is still involved in local sports and enjoyed playing high level rugby league in his younger days. He has also been involved with local theatre, performing in local events when his schedule allows.

 

He is a great believer in the individual’s right to prosper and believes the government should preserve that right.

 

Robbie grew up in Charters Towers with his parents, Bob and Susie Katter, and his four sisters.

 

He now lives in Mount Isa with his wife Daisy, their horses and two dogs.
