Braedon Earley has been pre-selected by 1 Territory for the seat of Lingiari for the 2016 Federal Election.


Braedon is a loyal Territorian with not only a solid track record of successful business ventures, but also many strong working partnerships amongst construction giants who have reshaped the Northern Territory’s business horizon. He has consulted in all successful major projects in the Northern Territory over the last 16 years.


Braedon was born in Darwin and raised on Goondooloo Station, a remote cattle station 200km southeast from Katherine on the Roper River.  The station was largely staffed from nearby Aboriginal communities and Braedon grew up amongst their children learning the local culture and traditions as well as establishing his roots amongst the Territory outback way of life. At an early age Braedon ran stock camps, bull catching teams and helicopter yards to trap and muster mostly feral herds of cattle, that roamed from property to property in the early days. Braedon was raised in this environment with his two brothers Mark and Jarron. Their strong ties with the local Aborigines in particular Jilkminggan, Beswick, Barunga, Elsey and other communities along the Roper River, still exist today.


Braedon has been fortunate to experience the best the Territory has to offer. Braedon’s early childhood was in Alawa. After Cyclone Tracey, Braedon’s family moved to Goondooloo Station where with his brothers he attended Katherine School of the air and later Clyde Fenton primary in Katherine. He did his final years of schooling at The Scots College in Sydney and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Property Economics at Queensland University of Technology.


After graduating with a Bachelor of Applied Science, Property Economics, Braedon was quick to return to the Territory where he applied the skills gained from his education to challenging, entrepreneurial projects – further developing his passion for business.


Braedon is well known throughout the Darwin community, from politicians of all persuasions to tradespeople and layman alike. He has a reputation for straight shooting, no nonsense business approach and a can-do attitude. He is approachable, highly visible and enjoys helping others succeed, particularly young people in business.


A Territorian through and through, Braedon has represented Australia and the Northern Territory in varied arenas of activity in the past. His vision is to see the Territory prosper and move forward – he is a willing contributor to achieve this outcome.


Braedon and his wife Sarah enjoy the spirit of the Darwin lifestyle, particularly the outdoor activities of sport, fishing, beachside barbeques and entertaining his children.
