About Callide

At 74,199 km2, the electorate of Callide is larger than Tasmania. It stretches roughly 40km from Roma to within 40km of Rockhampton!

Agriculture and Mining are the backbone of the electorate, which is why fighting for less red and green tape, and more common sense in our policies is critical to our future.

Covering three regions of Queensland, and five council areas, there’s no shortage of things to do and see.

There are sixty schools, fourteen hospitals, five major dams, and more small businesses than you can count.

When Callide’s Coal Fired Power Stations are actually maintained and running, alongside our gas plants, we also produce more than 16% of Queensland’s on-demand, affordable base load electricity.
