Dr Andrew Leigh, Federal Member for Fenner and resident of Hackett, officially launched the book ‘Hackett – 50 years plus: Story of a north Canberra suburb’ at the 'Party at the Shops' event on 27 October 2018.
HCA members and contributors have been working on this book for a number of years and are proud to see this comprehensive historical record of Hackett finally come into being.
