Minister for Tourism & Multicultural Affairs | Member for Ramsay

Zoe Bettison was elected to the South Australian Parliament as the Member for Ramsay on February 11, 2012. She has a longstanding interest in education, training and business investment. Participation in the economy for all South Australians is a key driver for her interest in politics.

Born in Whyalla, Zoe lived in Gawler and Kapunda where she attended Kapunda High School. She now lives in Salisbury with her husband and son.

She has a BA from Flinders University and a MBA from the University of Adelaide. Prior to her election Zoe worked for an iconic Australian tourism operator and was a director of a public affairs company.

Zoe became a Minister following the 2014 state election and worked progressing the South Australian Government’s reform agenda on ageing, multicultural affairs, social housing and youth. During her time as Minister, she made energy bills cheaper for concession-holders, introduced the Cost of Living Concession, tripled the budget for multicultural affairs and gave people living in Retirement Villages a stronger voice.

Under the leadership of Labor Leader, Peter Malinauskas, Zoe has held the role of Shadow Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment since 2018. Zoe believes that increased international trade and tourism with the world will bring more jobs and opportunities for all South Australians.


In March 2021, the Labor Leader requested Zoe take on the role of Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs. She welcomed the role and the opportunity to connect and advocate for our diverse community.
