CONTROVERSIAL Senator Pauline Hanson will appear at a function organised by one of the region's peak lobby groups.

Ms Hanson will be coming to the Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise Political Leaders Series next month, after she was invited by her state leader Steve Dickson.

The three-part series will also include Leader of the Opposition Tim Nicholls and State Development Minister Dr Anthony Lynham.

TSBE executive chairman Shane Charles said the sessions would focus on what each party could do for the Toowoomba region.

"It's really just advocacy for our region, there will be a state election coming up and we want to chat about our state leaders," he said.

"It's a political leaders function and we told them if they wanted to bring a federal counterpart, they could.

"One Nation are the only party that are bringing a federal counterpart.

"The nights are based around state-based issues, such as infrastructure, and we've got a number of infrastructure priorities we want to discuss."

The first session with Mr Nicholls will begin on May 31, with Mr Dickson and Ms Hanson on June 7 and Dr Lynham on June 27.

Venues will be revealed closer to the date.

For tickets, go to the TSBE website.
