Why is Hakoah important? Hakoah supporters Kathy Shand and Barry Smorgon explain just some of the many reasons why Hakoah will make a transformative difference to our community. ...


Environmental consciousness and environmental sensitivity has informed the redevelopment at every stage. The project is being designed and delivered to a 5-star Greenstar rating under the Green Building Council Guidelines. Multiple sustainability initiatives have been introduced, including:

* Trees - New planting following removal of pest/weed species, means the number of trees on site increases as does the number of native tree species. 🌳

* Habitat - the boundary environmental zones provide suitable new habitat for native mammal species and birds in the area. 🐦

* Transport and access - the site is accessible by public transport, rail and bus, and is pedestrian and cyclist friendly with undercover parking for over 100 bicycles provided. 🚌

* Lighting - Low energy lighting is employed throughout the campus, including sports lighting. The Club building roof is anticipated to become an environmental node, combining raised solar panels as shade structures, and an extensive roof garden. 💡

* Building and energy - the 5-star Greenstar rating ensures buildings are energy efficient and relatively simple to cool and heat, relying primarily on passive heating and cooling.

Thoughts on bringing it back?

Igor is looking forward to having a space to utilise his creative skills and work collaboratively with others.

He will have a range of spaces to do this in at the new Hakoah...

What are you looking forward to?

WINNER WINNER SCHNITZEL DINNER! Mazeltov to our final winner Chaim Greenwald on winning a $500 visa gift card!

Chaim used to travel from Melbourne for the famous schnitzels and can’t wait to taste all the new delicious delights Hakoah will have to offer, this time with his kids.

Inclusion is something we take very seriously and want everyone to feel included, accepted and able to join in.
Please let us know any ways you think Hakoah could be more inclusive?

Nail salons. 💅🏼
Open mic night but not open mic. 🎤

From the very beginning our mantra has been “life’s better together”.

And we have already proved that to be true.

Together, we got to that magic number of 2000 members and in doing so have made life better for all of us.

Hakoah is now a reality with plans to start building early next year.

So let’s celebrate.

Thank you to all of you.
