About Banksia Cottage

The Centre opened its doors on Monday, February 22, 1993 as the Macquarie University Child Care Centre at Banksia Cottage. It was licensed for 60 children and gave priority to families of University staff. Professor Jack Bassett, Deputy Vice Chancellor, was appointed to oversee the governing Banksia Board.

In 1995, due to the increasing demand for Banksia's services, the University agreed to extend the Centre from 3 playrooms to five.

Banksia Cottage now comes under the management of Campus Life and is open to University staff and students. It retains the community spirit that it has always operated with and continues to provide high quality education and care to the University community.
