Mawson Corner

The Mawson Corner redevelopment has transformed an under-utilised corner of the North Terrace campus and enhanced the north eastern gateway.

The first project associated with the Public Realm Strategy involved removing and relocating the original boundary fence to make the campus more welcoming and enhance connectivity with the city. The lush space now provides a fresh view of the campus from Botanic High School and a social space for staff, students and members of the public to enjoy.
