Experience the awards

Share the magic of the 2016 Murdoch University Distinguished Alumni Awards ceremony.

In November 2016, upper Bush Court on the South Street campus in Western Australia was transformed with a marquee and lighting, taking advantage of the picturesque surrounds at Murdoch University. 

The 2016 winners, Mr Chen Siqing, Dr Kuruvilla Mathew, Mr Patrick McClure AO, and Professor Jan Thomas, joined Emcee Professor Colleen Hayward AM, senior Murdoch leadership, academics and VIP guests at the event.
Special guests included The Hon. Alannah MacTiernan, Dr Christopher Back Liberal Senator for WA, City of Rockingham Deputy Mayor Deb Hamblin, Chancellor Mr David Flanagan, Vice Chancellor Professor Eeva Leinonen and members of the Murdoch University senior leadership. The evening’s magic was captured and edited by our very talented Murdoch alumnus, Callum Koch.
