Welcome to the University of Western Australia. This historical campus has a unique beauty, elegance and heritage, making it one of Perth’s most sought-after locations for corporate functions, private parties, weddings and other events.

You’d be hard pressed to find a more convenient location for a function in Perth. Just minutes from the CBD with ample parking and good public transport connections, the campus is easily accessible and boasts a prime position on the banks of the beautiful Swan River.

At University Function Caterers, we offer a range of venues for hire at UWA to suit events of all sizes and styles.

Hackett Hall

The heritage Hackett Hall (overlooking rose gardens, sprawling lawns and the iconic Winthrop Hall) is the perfect setting for a beautiful breakfast, elegant engagement party, or any event with a touch of class.

Dating back to the 1930s. Hackett Hall has seen it all; with revered professors. noted dignitaries and future Prime Ministers all having walked its wooden floors. Recent renovations have retained all the original beauty while adding a modern touch.

An elegant wedding space; a formal ball room; a corporate banquet hall; a long-table lunch location; Hackett Hall can transform to be the venue you need it to be. Treat your guests to the epitome of sophistication when you host your next function at Hackett Hall.
