Branches across Queensland

The Young LNP is made up of local branches, which are spread across the state from the Gold Coast in the south to Cairns in the north. The branch is the basic party unit and it is in branches that most Young LNP activities take place. Members of the Young LNP are all members of a branch of their choice located in their region. Branches meet regularly, have social functions, assist in election campaigns, debate policy, and are self-governed by their own executive committees. The following is a list of the branches which make up the Young LNP:
