Our Journey

The Ingham Institute started as Bob Ingham (AO)’s vision in 1996 to give something back to the South West. On October 23 2012, it finally came to life in the form of a world-class, state of the art research precinct which was officially opened by the Prime Minister of Australia, the Hon Julia Gillard MP.

As a charitable organisation, the Institute has been fortunate enough to receive the long-running support of some great community members including the Ingham family and Lady Mary Fairfax. The Institute wouldn’t be where it is today without this long-standing generous support.
