The one and only Jabberwocky

Welcome to GovHack Western Australia!

GovHack is back for Perth, and this year we’re joined by an all-new event at Geraldton. Check out the locations here.

If you’ve participated before, you may have recollections of frantically scrambling through web pages looking for dataset links. No more! This year we’ve introduced the ‘Competition Portal‘, a central location where we display event locations alongside their relevant datasets.


Sponsor GovHack WA!

Money raised through sponsorship goes to directly support our competitors. GovHack is a community event, organised and run by volunteers. Your sponsorship will go the distance!

Need to enhance your organisation’s visibility within Sydney or Newcastle? Our state sponsors also get naming rights, and may display branding at events, speak at the event and awards night, contribute featured datasets, and more. Sound interesting? You can read through the details in our state sponsorship prospectus, then please:


Become a mentor for GovHack WA

Are you an authority on datasets, or a subject matter expert?

Competitors will need guidance on data sets and experts to bounce their ideas off. Over the competition weekend, you too can contribute to GovHack by supporting the achievements of our participating teams! Find out more here, and please consider registering as a mentor.


Need to chat with someone?

Please get in touch our state manager:

Still have a question and not sure who to contact? Our contact page might be able to shed some light 🙂
