About Bradfield

The Bradfield electorate is on Garigal land that belonged to the Darramuragal or Darug people who lived in the area for thousands of years. 

Geographically Bradfield is located on Sydney's northern ridgeline that follows the Pacific Highway and North Shore railway line - and where its endangered remnant Blue Gum High forests grow.  Bradfield suburbs are surrounded by national parks including Lane Cove, Garigal and Ku-ring-gai Chase. 

Bradfield is about 101 and includes the bushland and garden suburbs of Killara, Lindfield, Gordon, Pymble, Turramurra, Wahroonga, Roseville, Castle Cove and parts of Normanhurst, Hornsby and Asquith.

The electorate is named after the respected NSW public servant Dr John Job Crew Bradfield, who was responsible for the expansion and electrification of the suburban rail network - including the north shore railway line that runs to Penrith.  Dr Bradfield is best remembered for the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge that opened in 1932.

Dr Bradfield lived in Park Avenue, Gordon.  He is commemorated by a small island garden on Rosedale Road, opposite his home.  

There are approximately 96,000 voters in the electorate of Bradfield.

Join us to make Bradfield Better and to take action on

Climate Change

Australia needs urgent, strong and authentic action on the climate emergency.  Australia, as yet, has no plan on how to reach net zero emissions before 2050.   Address climate change now.


Australia needs a strong, independent and well funded federal integrity commission. Federal ICAC now.


Janine would seek expert advice to prepare an 'ABC Guaranteed Funding Bill' to ensure secure funding for the ABC into the future.  Secure the future of the ABC now.

“I am very disturbed that these ‘aligned’ councillors are undermining local democracy at a time when I am calling for greater transparency and integrity at the federal level.
Former local council member and teacher Janine Kitson has announced she will be contesting the seat of Bradfield as an independent in the next Federal Election.
Now, quixotically, she plans to stand for the environment, accountability, public education and broadcasting in a seat that has been regarded as “safe, blue ribbon Liberal” since Federation.
