Brendon John Grylls (born 5 June 1973 in Perth, Western Australia) is an Australian politician and is currently the Member for Central Wheatbelt in the Western Australian Legislative Assembly, as well as the Leader of the National Party of Western Australia. Grylls has been the Minister for Regional Development and Minister for Lands in the Barnett Ministry since 23 September 2008. He was educated at Wesley College, Perth.

His political career began in November 2001 when he contested and won a state by-election following the retirement of former Nationals Leader Hendy Cowan to become the Member for Merredin. Following a redistribution in 2008, Merredin was largely incorporated into the new Central Wheatbelt Electoral district.

Grylls was the Shadow Minister for Environment and the Wheatbelt in the Liberal-National Coalition prior to the 2005 election. In June 2005 Grylls challenged then Leader Max Trenorden to become the new leader of the Parliamentary National Party of Australia (WA).

Merredin Council has ordered the historic Railway Institute Hall to be demolished. Another building to be bulldozed by the reckless Merredin Shire Councillors. This is against the wishes of the locals. This building was built in 1920 as a learning and community Centre for Railway employees. It is a solid building and is structurally sound. With minor funding and some community work it could be bought back to it's former glory. The Railway put Merredin on the map, and the buildings and history deserve some respect from the local councillors and MP's. Brendon Grylls-don't let your town disappear before your eyes! Is your house next on the list???
