Our Candidates

 Here are our candidates for the Senate in Queensland.


Michael Turner

Queensland Senate Candidate

Michael Turner 

After four tours of duty overseas serving with the Australian Army, Michael Turner now wants to serve his country at home, taking the fight to the Senate.  With his wife, Karen, and four children behind him, he brings the ‘can-do’ and ‘never give-in’ attitude of an Australian Digger to get Government back on track from its current state of disarray.

Michael’s military experience, regularly competing in the Australian Skill at Arms Meeting (AASAM), pistol target shooting and hunting means he’s well-placed to promote safe shooting and combat the incorrect stigma on law-abiding firearms owners

His operational experience with the Australian Army includes:

  • Operation GOLD in Sydney, supporting the 2000 Olympics (2001)
  • Operation BEL ISI in Bouganville (2001)
  • Operation CITADEL in East Timor (2003)
  • Operation ASTUTE in Timor Leste  (2006)
  • Operation SLIPPER in Afghanistan (2011)



Michael Gee

Queensland Senate Candidate

Michael Gee 

Michael Gee believes that ‘enough is enough’ when it comes to the unfair vilification of law-abiding firearms owners, hunters and fishers in the media.  Although working as a Brisbane-based lawyer, he understands issues facing farmers, having spent a great deal of time in Queensland’s New England area.  He believes that people in the cities have become out of touch with rural Australia.

He is no stranger to shooting sports and the role of hunters in managing pest animals in Queensland to protect our native habitats.  As a member of the Australian Deer Association, he is a keen deer hunter, but also hunts other feral animals, such as pigs and goats.

Michael is a Queensland Senate candidate for the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party because he wants to stop the attack on the rights and cultural identity of firearms owners and people on the land that he sees every day.  His work with people with disabilities and volunteer legal work drive him to secure the best deal for our community’s disadvantaged.
