About Cathy McGowan AO

Cathy came to national attention when she won the rural Victorian seat of Indi as an independent in 2013. The community backed her again in 2016 and in 2019 Indi made Australian political history when Dr Helen Haines was elected as Indi's second, independent woman.

During her time in politics Cathy actively worked in Parliament to develop policy around regional development, constitutional change for First Nations people and a solution to the indefinite detention of asylum seekers.

Since leaving politics she has been active in supporting the community independents' movement and is currently the Chair of AgriFutures Australia, a national agricultural research and development corporation.

Western University has awarded her a Doctor of Letters (honoris causa,) in 2019 she was awarded The Accountability Round Table award for political integrity. She is an Officer in the Order of Australia, a Churchill fellow and lives very happily on her farm in the Indigo Valley, Dudwroa & Dhargal country, in north-east Victoria.
