Anthony Albanese has visited Queensland in the final days of the election campaign, in a bid to win over the state’s traditionally Coalition-aligned voters.

The Morrison government currently holds 23 of the 30 seats in Queensland, with the Labor Party holding six.

Albanese said he has “serious plans” to claim victory in Saturday’s federal election and change government.

“Change the government, give us a chance at creating a better future,” he said.

Some seats Labor is hoping to win are Leichhardt include North Queensland and Longman, north of Brisbane along the Bruce Highway.

They’re looking to claim the seat of Brisbane, which covers the city’s CBD and inner suburbs, Ryan, covering Brisbane’s western suburbs, and Dickson, currently held by Defence Minister Peter Dutton.

Albanese said he’s confident Labor candidate Ali France will beat Dutton on election day.

“Ali’s been running for this seat now for at least four years,” he said.

“She is an outstanding candidate for the people of Dixon.”

The opposition leader denied trying to avoid local media, despite keeping them in the dark about his movements.

A team of journalists on the campaign trail were only told where they were going once they had arrived at their Brisbane location.

“I would miss you dearly and I will miss you when the campaign is over, I’m happy for you to come with me wherever,” Albanese said.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Albanese didn’t know “whether he was coming or going.”

“If he can’t hack a campaign then how on earth is he going to run a country,” Morrison said.
