Dianne Elizabeth Farmer (born 12 February 1961) is an Australian politician. She was first elected for the seat of Bulimba to the Queensland State Parliament for the Labor at the 2009 Queensland election but lost her seat at the 2012 election to Aaron Dillaway of the Liberal National Party. Farmer defeated Dillaway at the 2015 election to regain Bulimba for Labor.

Despite her previous experience in Parliament and the previous Caucus did not have a backbench, Farmer missed out on a spot in the new Palaszczuk ministry.

Farmer was born in Brisbane, and received a Bachelor of Speech Therapy from the University of Queensland and a Postgraduate Diploma of Administrative Studies from Kedron Park College of Advanced Education. She was a public servant and Labor Party organiser prior to her election. [1]
