Welcome to my online office!

It is my honour and privilege to serve you in the Queensland Parliament. Surfers Paradise is a special part of the world. With its playful history, Surfers Paradise has long been considered the heart and soul of the Gold Coast, where entertainment, tourism and business collide and thrive.

As your local representative my goal is to ensure the spirit of Surfers is retained by delivering a world-class transport system, supporting a robust local business and tourism economy, and encouraging sustainable development.

Part of my role as a Member of Parliament is to ensure your needs and the needs of my community are served by the State Government. Since being elected in 2004 I have worked hard to make sure the Gold Coast has a strong voice in Parliament. As a result, I have successfully campaigned for tougher restrictions on underage drinking and bans on dangerous drug implements, as well as initiating other important public health measures which will help improve the health and well-being of Queenslanders.

I am committed to delivering results and representing the people of Surfers Paradise to the best of my ability. In order to achieve this, I rely on your feedback about the issues that affect you in our community. I hope you will use this website to contact me and express your views and ideas.

Thank you for visiting!
John-Paul Langbroek MP
Minister for Education, Training and Employment
Member for Surfers Paradise
