Barnaby grew up on a property at Danglemah, in the hills behind Tamworth. He was one of six children and, even at primary school, stated that he would one day get into politics.
After leaving school Barnaby gained a degree in commerce, majoring in accountancy. Concentrating on developing this field of knowledge he worked for eight years between tax in a chartered accountancy firm, cost in a large multinational and finance in a bank. Whilst doing this he also attained his CPA before opening his own accountancy practice from an old shop front in St George, Queensland.
He entered the Senate as a Nationals representative for Queensland after the 2004 election.
Barnaby is married to Natalie and has four daughters.
