One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has announced 36 candidates who will stand at the next Queensland election, saying there were plans to announce more soon.

She said she was "wiser, more knowledgeable, experienced, and the party has moved on", after One Nation's 11-seat victory in the 1998 state election.

“Far up the Sheepscot, where the tide goes out,

And leaves the river water free of salt,

And free to foster tame freshwater life,

Far from the sea’s tall terror, wave on wave

And tooth on tooth in the bone-handled jaws

Which ultramariners use as their laws,

I spy the first footprint of Robinson.

Though his birthplace gives little to go on,

He is implicit in the inward town

Where not a soul steps out of doors at noon

And no one stirs behind twelve-over-twelve

Panes in the windows.  Walk uphill yourself

And stand before the cluttered clapboard church

Signed `1830’ by its year of birth;

Look down through ash boughs on the whited town

Where they say he and his love slept alone

Under one roof for life, and where his moon

Singled him out, awake, each moonlight night

That spring tides steered upriver with their salt

And broke in these backwaters; feel his pulse

Still in the riverside and his strait house.”
