A strong voice for Bundaberg

A message from


Hi, I am Bree Watson, your LNP candidate for Bundaberg.

As the youngest of six children born in Bundaberg to small business owners, I understand the value of hard work and am proud to be raising my son here.  

After attending Avondale State School, St Joseph’s Bundaberg and Shalom Catholic College, I enjoyed a varied career that involved everything from photographing the 2000 paralympic games to owning a clothing store with my sister in the Bundaberg CBD. 

Always drawn to the land, I completed a Bachelor of Environmental Science in land management and a Bachelor of Science, attaining honours.  

I started working at Bundaberg Fruit and Vegetable Growers in 2010, designing and leading research projects that increased productivity and profitability for our region’s farmers. Passionate about the Bundaberg community and the horticulture sector, I stepped into the role of CEO in 2016.

After successfully advocating for the reinstatement of Paradise Dam to secure our local water supply and for a reduction in council land rates for farmers, I became the first female Chair of the Queensland Horticulture Council.  I have a proven track record of fighting for farmers. Now, I have put my hand up for State Parliament because I want to be the strong voice for all Bundaberg locals. 

Bundaberg has so much potential, but we are in a state of crisis because the current State Labor Government has stopped listening. They have backflipped on providing the level five services required to classify the new Hospital as a Level 5 Hospital. They are failing to act on the issues that matter most to Bundaberg locals. Issues like crime, health, housing affordability and availability. The cost of living and doing business is out of control under Labor.

I look forward to listening to all Bundaberg locals in the lead up to the October 2024 State Election and beyond. I’ll be working with the David Crisafulli LNP team to deliver on the right priorities for Queensland’s future.
