Born in Cairns and raised in Ingham, Mr Dowling, 62, has been married to his wife Rhonda since 1982. The pair have two adult children.

One of Australia’s finest rugby league prop forwards, he played in Townsville in the 1970s and later for Wynnum-Manly from 1980 to 1985.

He also played a season for English club Wigan prior to becoming a foundation member of the Brisbane Broncos where he starred from 1988 to 1991, amassing 75 games.

His stellar representative career included 14 Tests for Australia, 11 State of Origin matches for Queensland and six appearances for the Maroons in the pre-Origin era.

Mr Dowling was awarded the Australian Sports Medal in 2000 for contributions to rugby league.

A long-time business owner and resident of North Queensland, he says only the United Australia Party can deliver real change and restore freedoms for the people of the region.

“I have a strong resolve for the people of North Queensland. Our people deserve better and should be rewarded with a better standard of life now and for their children and their grandchildren,” he said.
