History Questionnaire

The Hackett Community Association is documenting the history of the suburb of Hackett to include in its 50 Year Book and has developed a questionnaire for members of the community to complete.  Although the questionnaire is extensive, you only need to complete those parts that are relevant to you.

The questionnaire can be downloaded from the website by clicking here.

We will be grateful for any contributions as we are keen to include in the 50 Year Book as many human interest stories from members of the community as possible to capture the spirit of residents over the years as seen through their eyes.

Completed questionnaires can be scanned and emailed to or delivered to Mr James Walker, 30 Madigan Street, Hackett.

If you have any queries please refer these to James on 6247- 0951.
