Senator Kimberley Kitching was a warrior for her beliefs, her Party and Australia.

In a relatively short time Kimberley made a firm impression on the Australian Senate and Australian politics.

Since her appointment to the Senate in 2016 Kimberley immersed herself in her policy passions, building a reputation as a tough operator willing to stand by her convictions.

Kimberley’s untimely and sudden death at just 52 years of age will shock all who knew her. Although we held political differences, Kimberley was someone with much more to contribute.

On behalf of the entire Coalition Senate team I extend our condolences to Kimberley’s husband Andrew, her loved ones, friends and Labor colleagues.
