PATRICIA Petersen gave voters a "surprise" at pre-polling yesterday when she was decked out in a bikini and other assorted beach wear to celebrate Australia Day.
The independent candidate for Ipswich looked like she was on her way to a Cronulla beach in her Australia Day bikini and thongs, zinc cream and sun visor. Ms Petersen said that she wanted to "get into the spirit of things" and not be "boring" on Australia Day.
"Voters were delighted that I went to the trouble of looking Australian. They were able to have a bit of a chuckle about the bikinis and zinc cream," she said.
