Why the kookaburra (Werekata) and cockatoo (Keyarapai) were chosen

It's really important to us that the new precinct is welcoming and safe for all community members. We selected these two birds as they're often seen flying around the John Hunter campus and they're also very important in Aboriginal culture. 

Thank you to all those who entered and to our builder Multiplex for providing the winner and runners-up prizes.
