Dawesville Electorate Profile

Current Member
Zac Richard Francis Kirkup


Zac grew up in Midland, and after high school and a brief stint at Murdoch University, spent 2006 to 2009 working for the Liberal Party of Western Australia, eventually becoming the youngest ever Deputy State Director of the Party.

He was Principal Policy Officer for Premier Colin Barnett, advising both the Premier and Government in a variety of areas, including environment, corrective services, agriculture, planning, housing, heritage, emergency services, Parliament and Aboriginal affairs.

Zac then moved into the private sector working for Australia’s largest privately-owned builder, BGC, affording him an invaluable opportunity to see both the high-level strategy side of construction, but also physically working on those sites.

Elected to the Fortieth Parliament for Dawesville on 11 March 2017, Zac is the Manager of Opposition Business; Shadow Minister for Health; Mental Health; Innovation and Disruptive Technologies.
