The electorate of Fadden
was named for Sir Arthur Fadden
, a distinguished parliamentarian who served briefly from August to October 1941 as the Prime Minister of this great nation. He led Australia during a critical period of our history, and he often joked that he was like Noah's flood: he led the nation for 40 days and 40 nights.
The electorate of Fadden is one of the most beautiful areas of this nation, located in the magnificent Gold Coast. We make this claim with great boldness secure in the knowledge that Fadden is the fastest-growing federal electorate in the country, having grown by 31.6 per cent in the last six years.
More people want to relocate to Fadden than to any other federal electorate in the country and it's not hard to see why. Fadden is as diverse as it is spectacular. The suburbs of Labrador, Biggera Waters, Coombabah, Runaway Bay, Hollywell and Paradise Point cling to the magnificent Broadwater in the east, one of the nation's exquisite playgrounds. To the west are the hinterland suburbs of Gaven, Pacific Pines and Oxenford, that range from rural to family-friendly suburban areas. To the north are the cane fields of Woongoolba, the emerging areas of Coomera and Stapylton and the magnificent Gold Coast Marine Precinct, boasting some of the world's luxury boatbuilders as well as what is arguably the theme park capital of the nation.
Fadden clearly offers a lifestyle unparalleled, with world-class shopping, entertainment and living. There is a strong and vibrant heart to the electorate, and the Gold Coast also boasts the highest number of small to medium enterprises per capita in the nation. Fadden, and the Gold Coast, clearly has much to be proud of.
