Colin de Grussa

Member for the Agricultural Region

Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council
Shadow Minister for Agriculture and Food; Fisheries; Ports; Veterans Affairs
Opposition Whip in the Legislative Council

Colin was elected to State Parliament as Member for the Agricultural Region in 2017 after serving as the Party’s State President from 2013 to 2015.

Prior to entering Parliament, Colin was a third generation farmer from Neridup, north-east of Esperance. He attended school in Esperance before moving to Perth to study an Advanced Certificate in Microcomputer Technology. He used these skills to work in sales and support for a large computer wholesaler, before deciding that country life suited him better. Colin then undertook an Associate Degree in Agriculture at Muresk, where he graduated as Dux of the course.

He moved back to the family farm near Esperance and became involved in community and agri-political groups, including Esperance Rural Leadership, the National Council of Young Farmers and WA Farmers Esperance Zone. Colin was awarded a Nuffield Scholarship in 2014, travelling across the globe learning about agriculture and regional communities while researching how the agricultural industry in other nations interacts with consumers and government.

He’s passionate about making regional communities strong and vibrant by ensuring they have the services and infrastructure they need. He is proud to be a part of the Nationals WA team fighting for Royalties for Regions to help achieve this.
