Senator for Queensland
Gerard was born and raised on a family farming property just outside Chinchilla, on Queensland’s Darling Downs. Thanks to his upbringing and childhood experiences, Gerard maintains a deep appreciation for the land, its people and the challenges they face.
Gerard completed his secondary education in Toowoomba, before moving to Brisbane where he completed a Commerce degree at the University of Queensland – and later a Master’s degree in Taxation Law.
Gerard has extensive experience in senior finance roles across a range of industries, business types and countries. His experience gives him a strong understanding of our economy and how it affects consumers, investors, employers and employees. Gerard also understands the importance of reward for effort and will always strive to ensure that Australia’s small to medium-sized businesses are given every opportunity to succeed.
Gerard’s background means that he understands sound business principles; and as an LNP Senator for Queensland, he recognises the value of strong economic management, property rights and a just legal system, while he is also passionate about land management and ensuring the delivery of critical infrastructure. Gerard wants to ensure that the next generation of Australians have better opportunities, security and living standards than even we have enjoyed.
Good Government, is the best form of community service, and those who have gained it, should give it back in return.

Senator RENNICK: Hi, guys. How’re going? Given that heat is kinetic energy—the energy of motion—is it fair to say that CO2 traps heat, or is it fair to say that climate change theory invalidates the Stefan-Boltzmann law, which says radiation is emitted in all directions? Dr Marshall : Are we sticking with classical physics, or […]
The omission of the cost of existing housing from inflation figures is creating a flawed view of housing prices and is having serious repercussions for home buyers. “When the cost of existing housing isn’t reflected in the figures it means the economic picture is thrown out of whack.”
During additional estimates Senator Rennick questioned the Auditor-General’s intentions to smear the Morrison Government and demanded an explanation for why they did not explore industrial, infrastructure or residential zoning valuations for the Leppington Triangle land.
LNP Senator for Queensland Gerard Rennick said the Australian Government would deliver over $157.3 million to 380 local government authorities nationwide for safer and better-maintained roads via the R2R program.
Senator RENNICK (Queensland) (17 March 2021, 17:17): Well, well, well! The fox is in the henhouse. Here we go. We’ve got Labor suddenly worried about small business. Get real! This is the fox that wants to destroy small business. This is the party that wants higher taxes. This is the party that wants higher energy […]
Senator RENNICK (Queensland) (15 March 2021, 17:44): It’s quite astounding, the audacity of the Labor Party, when it comes to criticising the federal government on support for the tourism industry and support for the Australian economy as a whole. This package announced last week by the Morrison government of $1.2 billion is just a drop […]
Senator RENNICK (Queensland) (15 March 2021, 13:23): I rise in support of the Higher Education Support Amendment (Freedom of Speech) Bill 2020. I must say the word ‘freedom’ gets thrown around a lot. I sometimes think it’s thrown around without any thought for the true meaning of the significance of the word and its impact […]
Fear has been a tool that governments, and even the ancient civilisations of Egypt, have used to rule over their people, and these days there are people who are fearful of the climate changing enough that it will cause humans to become extinct. This fear has been instilled by governments, international organisations, university professors and […]
At a time where energy prices are soaring across the nation, it is vital that any projections regarding the cost of different energy sources are based on realistic assumptions, taking into account all relevant factors accurately without bias towards a particular type of energy generation.
It is well known that his in his farewell speech the great American president Dwight Eisenhower warned about the military-industrial complex. Today, of course, it is not just the military-industrial complex that we need to be wary of but also many other industrial complexes, whether it be superannuation, universities, renewables or the bureaucracy itself.
