The Hawke Building

Officially opened on 11 October 2007, the Hawke Building includes a number of public facilities (listed below), underlining the importance of community engagement to UniSA. The construction of the Hawke Building had assistance from a number of major sponsors which were coordinated through the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre.  These included significant support from the family of the late Kerry Packer and Allan Scott. The Hawke Building was designed by architect, John Wardle.
