Meet Rachel Brooking

I am a proud advocate for the South. I love and care deeply about Dunedin and its people. My home is Dunedin, and my connections to the city run deep and strong.

Rachel Brooking is the MP for Dunedin. She is a member of the Environment Committee and has previously been a member of the Finance and Expenditure, and Regulations Review select committees.

In April 2023, she was made a Minister, holding the portfolios of Oceans and Fisheries, Food Safety, Associate Environment and Associate Immigration in the Labour Government.

In the 54th Parliament Rachel is Labour's Spokesperson for Environment, Food Safety and Space. 

Rachel has lived and worked in Dunedin nearly all of her life, attending kindergarten through to secondary school in Dunedin, and graduating from the University of Otago. Working the majority of her professional career in Dunedin and with 20 years experience as a resource management and local government lawyer, she understands business, the community, the environment, and good governance.

Rachel is a proud advocate for the South.

"I am married to cancer specialist and campaigner Prof Chris Jackson, and together we have raised our family of three children here."
